Whether the Affordable Care Act is repealed or replaced, one thing is certain: tens of millions of Americans–32 million , or 22 million , or 24 million –will be kicked off healthcare plans. At least that’s the scenario widely being reported.
To be fair, these figures are all based on reports from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO). But how did the CBO arrive at these estimates?
First, the CBO is assuming that the Obamacare mandates will, for some miraculous reason, suddenly begin working. Up to this point, policy experts have agreed that the penalties were too low  to compel people who don’t want to purchase expensive coverage to buy plans.
Second, the vast majority of people being “kicked off” Obamacare—73 percent—are people who can afford a healthcare plan (according to the government) but don’t want to buy one.
