Grassley: CBO Has Final Word on Health Industry’s $2 Trillion Cost Savings Proposals

Sen. Chuck Grassley, ranking member of the Committee on Finance, today made the following comment on the health industry’s proposals to help save $2 trillion in health care costs.

“I’m skeptical that these proposals will add up to anywhere near $2 trillion. In the legislative process, proposals rise or fall based on what CBO says about them, and the same will be true here.”
