Senators reach tentative deal on ObamaCare insurer payments

October 18, 2017
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said Tuesday that he and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) have reached a bipartisan deal that would extend payments to insurers under ObamaCare that President Trump said he was ending last week.
The two senators are chairman and ranking member, respectively, of the Senate Health Committee.
The deal would extend the payments to insurers for two years and give states more flexibility to change ObamaCare rules. The negotiations had been aimed at stabilizing insurance markets.
Trump, who was holding a press conference with Greek’s prime minister as Alexander spoke with reporters, said what had been negotiated represented a “short-term” deal.

    This really reminds me of kicking the can down the road again. For eight long years we have been told to give the republicans control of the house, the senate and then the white house and they would repeal and replace. And they the republicans have had all this time to get a replacement in the wings and zilch. Get rid of the ones like mcCain, Flake, Collins etc.

    I hope this is a very short deal. The American people are getting very tired with supporting people that don’t need to be supported because they can work instead of living off the system. Trump said all the right things to get elected and he has put forth great effort like no other republican politician. The House and Senate are the hold ups here and we are all aware of that. This means we need to push the underlings to do what we wanted Trump to do and that is get rid of the liberal systems forced on us over the last 20 years. I HOLD the House and Senate responsible for any failures Trump has moving his agenda forward. I put the BLAME were it belongs.
