USA governors urge Trump to make insurance payments

In a twist, the appeals court panel seemed to take such statements into account in granting 17 states and the District of Columbia the ability to intervene on behalf of consumers.

Governors - Republicans and Democrats - want the White House to provide more certainty.

The attorneys general cited in their May court filing Trump's own words vowing to let Obamacare "explode" as part of the reasoning for their intervention.

There are signs of a modest bipartisan effort to buttress health insurance markets, four days after the GOP effort to uproot and reshape the Obama health care law crumpled in the Senate. It is those subsidies to which Trump referred. "The ruling could make it more hard for the White House to carry out recent threats by President Trump to cut off the payments, giving legal standing to a new set of the payments' defenders".

Disability rights groups have led the fight against repeal of basic health care rights, and several speakers told compelling stories illustrating what planned cuts or repeal of Medicaid would do to these individuals.

If Mitch McConnell had been watching any of the day's proceedings from somewhere in his dungeon, he might have wished he'd kept his nasty cat securely in its bag.

"He's weak more with Congress and the public", says Edwards. In fact, Trump-induced uncertainty surrounding cost-sharing reduction payments is already forcing insurers to raise prices.

Senate health committee chairman Lamar Alexander wants to continue the payments for a year. Here at the NAACP, we commit to continuing to educate, agitate, litigate and participate until every American can rest easy at night, knowing that they and their loves ones will be able to receive quality, affordable healthcare.

For some background: The insurer payments that Trump describes as "bailouts" are actually way to keep insurers in the marketplaces and prevent premium hikes. At home, though, they'll face five weeks of a considerably more threatening crowd: constituents upset with the Republican government's stalled agenda, capped off by last week's health care failure. But the Democratic lawmaker said that big reforms do get easily accomplished when the issue becomes a political football. We've got to do more to bring down costs and stabilize the insurance market; but we can only make real progress if Republicans and Democrats come together to find a solution.

Trump has threatened to end the subsidies if senators don't resume their efforts to pass an overhaul of the Affordable Care Act, after the latest push failed in a dramatic middle-of-the-night vote last week. Most of those 768 bills were bipartisan, according to his office. "It's time for new leadership in Washington", the ad reads. A court has ruled that Congress hasn't properly authorized the money.

"We are anxious about the continued uncertainty around the future of the CSR payments".

For those voters who said health care was most important, 66 percent said they disapprove of Trump, and more than half (55 percent) strongly disapprove.

Schumer says Trump would be to blame if that happens. "It would be very unfortunate if the Republicans decide to go down the same road they did on health care".

While the leaders stopped short of saying they were surrendering on an issue that's guided the party for seven years, their remarks underscored that Republicans have hit a wall when it comes to resolving internal battles over what their stance should be.

"What I'm going to say to them is the truth", Louisiana Sen.

Their drive crashed last week. But on Tuesday, budget director Mick Mulvaney told CNN that the Trump administration would make its decisions on a "month-by-month basis".
