  • Week Ahead: Senators Work Toward Deal to Fix Obamacare Markets The Hill by Jessie Hellmann — The Republican and Democratic heads of the Senate Health Committee are looking to cobble together a bipartisan Obamacare deal, after the GOP's latest failure to repeal the law. Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) are zeroing in on a deal aimed at stabilizing Obamacare's markets, which could come in days. Lobbyists have told The Hill the bill could potentially include two years of funding for Obamacare's insurer subsidies and an expansion of state waivers. It could also allow Obamacare enrollees to buy "copper plans," which are cheaper, less generous insurance plans that currently only people under age 30 can buy.

    3. The 2018 enrollment period is half the length of 2017's, and now it will be shorter still.
    4. The Trump administration is dragging its feet on giving states flexibility to stabilize their markets.

  • Trump Laid Out 3 Potential Paths Forward After the Latest Republican Failure on Health Care Business Insider by Bob Bryan — The day after the latest Republican health care bill collapsed, President Donald Trump laid out a few potential paths forward on healthcare for the federal government. During a question-and-answer session with reporters on the lawn of the White House, Trump suggested a few things: that Republicans have enough votes to go it alone on repealing the Affordable Care Act; that he could work with Democrats to pass a bill by early 2018; and that he could issue executive orders within weeks to make unilateral changes to the system. Finally, Trump said he was considering signing an executive order that he said would allow people to purchase insurance across state lines.
