The AP (10/19, Werner, Fram) reports that on Thursday, the bipartisan bill which seeks to stabilize ACA marketplaces “gained momentum...when enough lawmakers rallied behind it to give it potentially unstoppable Senate support.” The measure’s sponsors, Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA), “appeared together on the Senate floor to announce 24 sponsors, divided evenly between both parties, for resuming federal subsidies to insurers that [President] Trump has blocked.” The article says Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) indicated all 48 Senate Democrats would vote for the bill, and that number, combined with 12 GOP sponsors, would give the measure 60 votes, enough to defeat a filibuster.
