Lamar Alexander pulled the plug Tuesday on his push for a bipartisan bill to stabilize the individual health insurance market, saying he and a key Democrat had been unable to reach a deal that could pass. Alexander, a Tennessee Republican, said he and Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington “had hoped to agree early this week on a limited, bipartisan plan to stabilize 2018 premiums in the individual health insurance market that we could take to Senate leaders by the end of the month.”

Murray, the committee’s top Democrat, said the negotiations with Alexander had taken place in “good faith.”
