An analysis by the nonpartisan research organization Rand Corp. funded by the Commonwealth Fund, a nonprofit healthcare-research group, has found that if Donald Trump as president succeeds in his promise to get the Affordable Care Act repealed, 19.7 million people would lose their health insurance and the federal budget deficit would be widened by $33.1 billion in fiscal 2018.

The  study found that the Republican nominee’s proposed healthcare tax credits would largely benefit higher-income people.

The analysis found that  one of Hillary Clinton’s key health-reform plans could provide insurance to as many as 9.6 million  more  people and lower healthcare costs mainly for low- and moderate-income individuals. It would widen the deficit by $90.4 billion.
