The Hill (10/18, Roubein) reports a bipartisan group of 10 governors called on Congress to vote on the bipartisan legislation to stabilize the Affordable Care Act’s insurance markets. The governors wrote a letter Wednesday that said, “We urge Congress to quickly pass legislation to stabilize our private health insurance markets and make quality health insurance more available and affordable,” and added, “Senators Alexander and Murray have negotiated in good faith and developed a bipartisan agreement that will help achieve these goals.” The governors include John Kasich (R-OH), Brian Sandoval (R-NV), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), and Bill Walker (I-AK), among others. The Hill adds, however, that the “current deal...is already nearly dead” after President Trump “reversed course Wednesday and said he opposed the deal as is.” It's early on the 19th so I am sure that by the end of day this deal will have been back on the table, then taken off by lunch and back on by the evening news.
