Senate backers of deal to stabilize Obamacare seek to build support

President Trump initially supported the Alexander-Murray bill Tuesday afternoon before later tweeting he could "never support" a bill that funds cost-sharing subsidies.

"It means many more Californians and people across the country will get a zero-premium bronze plan", said Peter Lee, executive director of Covered California, the health insurance marketplace in the nation's most populous state. Indeed, without these subsidies, insurers will have to charge significantly more for silver plans.

McCaughey is a senior fellow at the London Center for Policy Research and a former lieutenant governor of NY state.

Households that earn more than 250 percent of the Federal Poverty Level aren't eligible for Obamacare financial assistance.

"It is a short-term solution so that we don't have this very risky little period", Trump said, adding that he would ultimately like to see block grants to states to give them flexibility in their insurance models.

If premiums go up, the size of the tax credit for lower-income households on the exchanges goes up commensurately.

Trump said he saw the proposal by Alexander and Murray as a way to fix the problems with Obamacare "for about a year or two" while Republicans continued to work to repeal and replace the law.

However, there's no guarantee the proposal would pass a Congress that's sharply split along partisan lines.

"Now that a number of Republican Senators have come forward to support this sensible, bipartisan package, I strongly urge Leader McConnell to put it on the floor without delay", Schumer said. ACA sign-up season starts November 1, and the Trump administration slashed the advertising budget.

"Those consumers who are subsidized who are enrolling in those plans generally will be shielded from those rate increases", Turek said.

Open enrollment will run from November 1 to December 15.

"I support the president because I think Obamacare is imploding and it not only impacts those on Obamacare, but everybody", said Roger Heuring, 58, who lives in New Jersey.

The unexpected assessment comes from consultants, policy experts and state officials, who are trying to discern the potential fallout from a Washington health care debate that's becoming even more complicated and volatile. So why are companies pulling back from the law's insurance marketplaces?

Democrats have fought to defend Obamacare, which extended health insurance to 20 million Americans. And this is a short-term deal because we think ultimately block grants going to the states is going to be the answer.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer spoke positively of the agreement, saying, "Two years of cost sharing provides real stability to the system and we want to make sure that happens".

If President Trump prevails in shutting down a major "Obamacare" health insurance subsidy, it would have the unintended outcome of making free basic coverage available to more people, and making upper-tier plans more affordable. In addition, individuals over age 30 would be eligible to purchase catastrophic plans offering basic coverage. These plans are not guaranteed renewable year to year. Instead, the premiums extorted from them are used to cover huge medical bills for the sick, who consume 10 times as much health care. "They're the ones that passed this mess to begin with", Heuring said. "So that sounds to me like something that's going to become a law in one form or another before the year is over".

For Trump, very little is ever truly ruled out or ruled in, and before long, a bipartisan health-care deal will surely again strike his fancy.

"It really upset me", said Westerman, 63, a self-described "middle-class guy" with an annual household income of about $60,000 in the western Pennsylvania city of Arnold.

That would leave Obamacare plans with an insurance pool increasingly made up of people in poorer health, which could cause premiums to rise even further in 2019, Blumberg said. Steve Bannon wants to persuade the president to support a crusade on behalf of True Trumpism; Mitch McConnell wants the president to steer clear of dubious candidates and show enough discipline that he's not an obstacle to passing legislation.
