How to read the CBO score

The Congressional Budget Office is publishing the final CBO score of the House Republican health care bill, which passed the House in May.

It is expected to be released Friday.

Here’s what you need to know about the score.

1.

CBO has not ruled out a Republican version of the bill 2.

The bill includes $1.7 trillion in spending cuts, which Republicans have been pushing to get to $20 trillion over a decade.

That includes a reduction in the Medicare eligibility age and a reduction to Medicaid.

It also includes $500 billion in tax cuts, mostly for individuals making more than $500,000.

3.

The CBO also is predicting that the bill will add $1,500 to the deficit over 10 years.

4.

It could reduce the number of people with insurance coverage by 10 million.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Act of 1974 included a provision called “trickle down” to encourage economic growth.

The GOP plan would allow taxpayers to deduct health care expenses that were previously paid by the government from their federal income tax bill, or tax credit.

The Congressional Research Service, which analyses the effects of legislation, estimates that the GOP plan will add about $1 trillion to the debt over the next decade.

5.

Republicans say they are going to repeal the individual mandate, but it is unclear if the measure will be as strict as Republicans would like.

6.

Some analysts are concerned that some of the tax cuts will not reach the rich and will affect people with high incomes.

7.

The number of uninsured people in the U.S. is expected a record high.

A growing number of states have passed Medicaid expansion, which allows low-income people to obtain coverage, including for people with preexisting conditions.

8.

The plan also includes a $1 billion tax cut for people making between $75,000 and $125,000 per year.

9.

There is no provision for Medicaid expansion in the bill.

It does include a $2,500 tax credit for parents with young children who earn up to $10,000 a year.

10.

The proposal would expand the Medicaid eligibility age from 65 to 67 and allow states to waive certain eligibility requirements.

11.

The House passed the bill in May, but Democrats in the Senate have blocked it from taking effect.

The Senate is expected later this month to pass its version of Obamacare.
