A study released today by the Urban Institute, a Washington think tank seen as left leaning, finds that repealing the Affordable Care Act would leave around 60 million people without insurance. That's more than were uninsured before the law went into effect.

Republicans say that dire prediction won't come true because they are going to replace the law.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Bertha Coombs (@berthacoombs) of CNBC about the study and what Republicans plan to do with health care.
