"That doesn't give Congress much time to implement a replacement", says Cynthia Cox, an associate director for the program for the study of health reform and private insurance at the Kaiser Family Foundation.
There are a few things many women from all political parties have in common: They want to preserve their access to health care, and they're frequently the targets of sexist trolls.
The CBO report looked at the direct spending and revenue effects of the ORRA, which would repeal many ACA provisions.
The GOP plan analyzed by the budget office - one of multiple versions now being considered - would still almost double the number of people without health coverage over the next decade, pushing up the ranks of the uninsured by 22 million.
The CBO's findings are similar to the office's report issued for the first version of the bill, which it also said would result in an additional 22 million people losing their insurance by 2026. So the bill would essentially keep certain rules on insurance companies in place while removing federal support to help pay for them.
Under the Republican legislation, about half of the us population would "live in areas having no insurer participating non-group market in 2020", the report said, citing "potential downward pressure on enrollment and upward pressure on premiums".
But if the numbers of uninsured are staggering, then the increase in premiums for those who have their insurance either through Obamacare-established marketplaces or private purchase, is equally disconcerting.
The bill would cut $842 billion in Medicaid funding by 2026, as well as repealing hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes. The federal government already prevents Medicaid patients from receiving abortion services.
But within 24 hours three Republicans - Sens. It takes just two Republicans to block the bill.
Yet regardless of how the Senate decides to move forward with repealing the ACA, any plan that would repeal major pieces of the healthcare law without an immediate replacement appears doomed to fail.
Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said he would call a vote next week on repealing the law without replacing it, but also could call for a vote on a repeal-and-replace measure.
