Trump Appears to Kill Bipartisan Obamacare Compromise

President Donald Trump on Wednesday appeared to kill a bipartisan health-care compromise that was negotiated just a day before and that the president seemed to embrace. “I am supportive of Lamar as a person & also of the process, but I can never support bailing out ins co’s who have made a fortune w/ O’Care,” Trump tweeted, in reference to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who negotiated the deal alongside Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA). The legislation would give state governments more flexibility to set their own insurance regulations, while extending the cost-sharing payments—which subsidize deductibles and copays for low-income Americans—for two years.
