The bill would cut Medicaid and other healthcare programs for low-income Americans and eliminate Obamacare’s individual mandate.

But a study by the conservative Mercatus Center at George Mason University predicts the bill would leave 20 million more people uninsured than Obamacare.

The House Rules Committee on Tuesday voted to strip healthcare provisions from a massive $1.1 trillion spending bill.

The spending bill is designed to keep the government running until September, when lawmakers are expected to pass a new spending plan.
