A new report by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says that if Congress repeals major provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) while leaving other parts intact, 18 million people could lose their health insurance within a year and individual insurance premiums would rise sharply. According to the CBO, if nothing followed the gutting of the ACA, 32 million people could lose coverage by 2026, and individual insurance premiums could double.
