The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a respected group of budget hawks, is out with its own estimate of the cost of repealing Obamacare. It has lots of different scenarios — full repeal, partial repeal — and is kind of hard to follow.

The key numbers:

  1. If they repeal everything (unlikely): Costs $350 billion over 10 years
  2. If they just repeal the coverage provisions (unlikely): Saves $1.6 trillion over 10 years
  3. If they repeal the coverage and taxes, but keep the Medicare payment cuts (more likely): Saves $750 billion over 10 years
  4. The group says repeal would increase the uninsured by 23 million.

Takeaway: The Medicare payment cuts are important to this. That's one reason House Speaker Paul Ryan's repeal plans always kept the savings.

Amy Cooper charged for calling police on Black bird-watcher in Central Park

A white woman who called 911 to accuse a Black man of threatening her life in Central Park in March faces misdemeanor charges for making a false report, the Manhattan District Attorney's office announced Monday.

The big picture: The May 25 incident, which was caught on film, was one of several viral episodes that helped catalyze massive Black Lives Matter protests against the police killings of Black people in the U.S.

McEnany defends Trump's tweet about Bubba Wallace and Confederate flag

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said during a press briefing Monday that President Trump "was not making a judgment one way or the other" about NASCAR's decision to ban the Confederate flag and that his attack on Bubba Wallace was an attempt to stand up for NASCAR fans who are unfairly painted as racist.

The state of play: McEnany was repeatedly grilled by reporters over the president's inflammatory tweet, in which he demanded that NASCAR's only Black driver apologize after the FBI determined that he was not a target of a hate crime and claimed that ratings had dropped after the sport banned the Confederate flag at its events.
