Freshman GOP Lawmaker Still Relying on Faulty McKinsey Study

Even after McKinsey acknowledged this week that its study on the Affordable Care Act is not predictive of actual economic outcomes, freshmen GOP House members are still citing its results on the number of employers expected to drop health coverage. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) said he believes in the veracity of the McKinsey findings at a press conference held today at the Capitol. Studies from both the non-partisan Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Urban Institute have shown to the contrary that the act will not substantially decrease employer-provided health insurance and may even offer “a stabilizing effect.” — Sarah Bufkin
