Repealing Obamacare would kick 18 million people off insurance in the first year alone, according to one study.

Republicans’ new plan to repeal Obamacare and replace it later may be no easier than their original proposal to do both at once, thanks to prior estimates of what repeal would cost and how many people would lose insurance.

Earlier this year, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimated that repealing the Affordable Care Act in its entirety would boost the budget deficit by about $350 billion through 2027. That just about matches a Congressional Budget Office report from June 2015, which projected that repealing President Barack Obama’s landmark health law would cost $353 billion over 10 years.
