ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urged Republicans to 'pull' their healthcare plan after a report by the non-partisan U.S. Congressional Budget Office forecasted that fourteen million Americans would lose medical insurance by next year. Pelosi added that the Republican plan would benefit the richest people and corporations and be the 'biggest transfer of wealth' in American history. The eagerly awaited CBO report also forecasted that 24 million more people would be uninsured in 2026 if the plan being considered in the House of Representatives were adopted. Obamacare enabled about 20 million previously uninsured Americans to obtain medical insurance. The CBO projected that 52 million people would be uninsured by 2026 if the bill became law, compared to 28 million who would not have coverage that year if former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law remained unchanged.
