Obama says Republicans share some blame for health-care law’s failures
CBO did recently say, however, that the Supreme Courts ruling might change the math. CBO is in the process of reviewing the Supreme Courts decision related to the Affordable Care Act to assess the effect on CBOs projections of federal spending and revenue under current law, the agency said in a statement.
