Broken promise?
Remember how U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers once said that "no one who has coverage because of Obamacare today" will lose coverage? Well, the Congressional Budget Office released a report saying the House Republican plan to replace Obamacare would leave 14 million people uninsured by next year. (Spokesman-Review/New York Times)
