Budget Brief 15-08
October 22, 2015

On October 9, 2015, the House budget committee marked up three reconciliation proposals submitted by the House Ways and Means, Energy and Commerce, and Education and Workforce committees. Taken together, the proposals would reduce federal budget deficits by -$78.9 billion over 10 years, by repealing major provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The budget committee combined all of the proposals into a single bill (H.R. 3762), which it approved. It now moves to the House floor for consideration. This Issue Brief provides background on the reconciliation process and analyzes the House bill.
