Cost of the Republican healthcare plan

Good news! The Republican healthcare plan will reduce the federal deficit by $337 billion over ten years.

Bad news: 24 million people will lose their health insurance.

Is it worth it? To help you decide, here are a few other ways to look at those numbers:

  • Every time Trump spends a weekend at Mar-a-Lago, it costs 237 people.
  • Providing security for Trump Tower costs 36 people per day.
  • Eric Trump’s trip to Uruguay in January on behalf of the Trump Organization cost 7 people.
  • The wall Trump wants to build on the Mexican border will cost 1.5 million people.
  • Trump’s proposed increase in defense spending would cost 3.8 million people.
