Senate Faces Showdown on ObamacareOctober 16, 2017 |
by Kimberly Leonard
Senators return to Washington on Monday facing great uncertainty over whether they will be able to strike a deal to keep Obamacare’s insurer subsidies flowing now that President Trump will not be funding them.
Without the funding, the Obamacare exchanges are likely to become further destabilized as Congress heads into the midterm elections next year. Republicans also face pressure to make changes to the law after failing earlier this year to fulfill their seven-year promise to repeal Obamacare.
