14M WOULD LOSE COVERAGE UNDER REPUBLICAN HEALTH BILL

Nonpartisan analysts on March 13 projected that 14 million people would lose coverage next year under the House bill dismantling former President Barack Obama's health care law.

Monday's estimate by the Congressional Budget Office says the number of uninsured would grow to 24 million by 2026.

The projections give fuel to opponents who warn the measure would toss millions of voters off insurance plans. Criticism has come from Democrats, Republicans from states that benefit from Obama's law and many corners of the health- care industry.
