  • Deep-Pocketed Health Care Lobbies Line Up Against Trump Politico by Adam Cancryn, Sarah Karlin-Smith, and Paul Demko—Just about every major health care group opposes President Donald Trump's health care overhaul—and the self-styled negotiator-in-chief hasn't tried cutting a deal with them. Hospitals and doctors are actively engaged in efforts to kill Trump's plan, fearful that its severe cuts to Medicaid and insurance subsidies will wreak havoc on their bottom lines. Patient advocates object to again allowing insurers to charge sick people more. Notably, insurers are largely avoiding this battle, focusing instead on pressuring Republicans to keep paying out Obamacare subsidies.

Hospitals are on the other side of that coin, concerned that a spike in the cost of Obamacare premiums next year will cause many people to simply drop insurance coverage, reducing their revenues in the near future.
