A bipartisan effort to fix Obamacare could get a vote in the Senate if President Trump makes clear he’ll sign the legislation, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday.
Trump has given mixed signals whether he supports the new bill by Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) to stabilize the insurance markets after he said he will pull payments to low -income Americans to reduce health care care costs.
