(Riley Beggin, ABC News) – White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said critics of the new GOP health care bill should not be too “worried about getting people coverage.”
Rather, the Republican bill and President Trump are focused on getting people affordable health care, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos.
“The bill actually helps a great many people,” Mulvaney said on “This Week” on Sunday. “It helps people get health care instead of just coverage.”
Preliminary analyses from the Brookings Institution and Standard and Poor’s estimate that six to 15 million people could lose coverage under the Republican proposal for repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare.
Stephanopoulos asked Mulvaney about Trump’s earlier promise that there would be “insurance for everybody.”
