The CBO projects that the GOP’s Obamacare replacement would cause 24 million people to lose their health insurance, but it failed to mention all the job opportunities that will open up when a bunch of people die. A low-pressure system is moving up the East Coast, and tonight’s forecast is calling for clouds with increasing chances of Senate stunt snowballs. And Kellyanne Conway said microwaves may be spying on the president. At the very least, the White House’s increasingly paranoid tone jibes with that mason jar of Steve Bannon’s urine that was nominated to be Army secretary. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Monday, March 13th, 2017:

CBO RELEASES AHCA ESTIMATES: 24 MILLION LOSING CARE – Our estimate: Sean Spicer is going to say something dumb about this tomorrow and that thing will end up on t-shirts worn by your favorite woke Instagram stars. Jeffrey Young: “The Republican plan to repeal and ‘replace’ the Affordable Care Act would increase the number of Americans without health coverage by 24 million and reduce the federal budget deficit by $337 billion by 2026, according to a Congressional Budget Office report published Monday. The American Health Care Act, conceived by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and endorsed by President Donald Trump, has already been approved on party-line votes in two House committees. These negative findings give lie to Trump’s repeated promises that the Republican alternative would provide universal coverage and lower prices for Americans. Shortly before taking office, for example, Trump told The Washington Post that ‘we’re going to have insurance for everybody’ that would be ‘much less expensive and much better.’” [HuffPost]

Amazing that the guy who had to settle all those fraud suits isn’t on the level about things like this: “For the last several years, Trump himself has appeared to be a big fan of the CBO and its analysis. In fact, he frequently cited the office’s work in attacks against former President Barack Obama’s record on health care, jobs, the unemployment rate and the economy…Based on his advisers’ recent comments, Trump appears to be having a change of heart with respect to the CBO now that he’s president. Republicans are bracing for a report that will show millions of Americans losing health coverage under the plan that GOP leaders, and Trump himself, are championing as a replacement for the Affordable Care Act.” [HuffPost’s Igor Bobic]

STEVE KING EXPLICITLY ENDORSES WHITE NATIONALISM, IS STILL IN CONGRESS – Shout out to Paul Ryan’s kindler, gentler brand of Republicanism. Hayley Miller: “Longtime civil rights champion Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) slammed Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) Monday for ‘bigoted and racist’ comments that appeared to support white nationalism. King landed himself in hot water Sunday when he retweeted an Islamophobic cartoon and praised the illustrator for understanding ‘that culture and demographics are our destiny.’ ‘We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,’ King tweeted, apparently an attack on Muslims and immigrants entering the U.S. The backlash intensified on Monday after an unbowed King appeared on CNN’s ‘New Day.’ ‘I meant exactly what I said,’ King told CNN’s Chris Cuomo, adding that he’d like the U.S. to be ‘so homogenous that we look a lot the same.’” [HuffPost]

OH, AND WHAT ABOUT HIS TAX RETURNS? Amanda Terkel: “The House Intelligence Committee has asked President Donald Trump to submit evidence of his allegation that his predecessor wiretapped Trump Tower by Monday. But it’s still not clear whether he or his administration will comply ― or whether there’s any evidence to offer. ‘We are reviewing the letter and will decline further comment at this time,’ said Justice Department spokesman Pete Carr. Trump asked Congress to investigate his claim, which he tweeted about on March 4, that Barack Obama personally ordered surveillance on Trump Tower before the election. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said the committee would look into the matter as part of a broader inquiry into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. So far, there is no evidence that Trump’s allegation was anything but a conspiracy theory, perhaps picked up from a right-wing website. If there is proof, Trump seems to be the only person to have it.” [HuffPost]

TRUMP TO CALL FOR RADICAL CUTS IN FEDERAL WORKFORCE – But the Trump steak each bureaucrat will get will more than make up for the social collapse. Damian Paletta: “President Trump’s budget proposal this week would shake…
