NYT: 2 Senators Strike Deal on Health Subsidies That Trump Cut Off
A plan by Senators Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Patty Murray of Washington to fund health subsidies for low-income consumers won President Trump’s backing.
By Thomas Kaplan and Robert Pear

A bipartisan deal has emerged between Lamar Alexander and Patty Murray that will fund the health subsidies for the Affordable Care Act for the next two years. 

This will negate Trump’s shameful and nihilistic decision to quit funding them. It’s entirely possible that this will die in the Senate or House (more likely than we’d like to think, actually), and it’s possible that Trump won’t sign it, but Trump did endorse the plan today (which is odd, because he also said today that “Obamacare is dead”),

So maybe premiums won’t jump up and people won’t lose their health insurance. We’ll see if Congress can do its job.
