Can A Newly-Introduced Bipartisan Healthcare Bill Make It Through Congress Without President Trump's Support?▼
In a bipartisan effort to fix the health care industry, U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA) proposed new legislation last night. The bill would save subsidies that President Trump cut with the executive order he signed last week.
Despite initial reports that the President told Senator Alexander that he supported the bill, he has since stated that isn't the case. This morning President Trump tweeted that he supports the idea of bipartisan cooperation, but would not bail out the health insurance companies.
Can this bill make it through the Senate without the support of President Trump? Jack Holmes, Associate Editor at Esquire, explains why it's unlikely.
Holmes also takes a look at the tension between the U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and the president after Senator McCain decried nationalism in a speech on Monday. Source
