The coalition of Democratic state attorneys general filed a motion on May 18 to intervene in the case. In an order, the court says the states have "demonstrated the appropriateness of their intervention". That could leave millions of Americans without any options for subsidized coverage in the individual market.
HASSAN: Well, I'm really encouraged that the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee on which I serve is going to hold bipartisan hearings on how to bring stability to the health insurance markets.
Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC deemed Trump's treatment of Sessions "unseemly" and "a sign of great weakness on the part of President Trump". Democrats have in fact been in the majority in Senate for most of the president's lifetime (more than 50 of the past 71 years). "They're good. ... They invite us to work across the aisle".
"We can't be done with it yet", the governor said of health care. However, the report also says that 15 million of those people would lose it simply because the individual mandate, the requirement to purchase insurance, was ended in the new plan.
Surprisingly, only 4% of Trump supporters actually purchased their health insurance through the marketplaces previous year, according to a study by the Kaiser Family Foundation and data from the Cooperative Congressional Election study.
We pay more than $600 a month for health insurance and we continue to pay with each doctor appointment or hospital visit because although we reached our deductible, there is still a percentage we are responsible for. President Donald Trump should put a freeze on the costs.
Unless Republicans are "total quitters", Trump tweeted, they will revive their yearslong effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare. The Kaiser focus groups found that while many of these Trump voters were relieved to have insurance coverage, most were quite surprised by the reality of the costs and the complexity once they became enrolled.
Sen. John Cornyn of Texas did not specify what issues the two sides could address together.
Fresh off a humiliating defeat in their seven-year quest to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, GOP leaders are apparently defying President Trump, who wants them to take another shot at passing one of the various bills that were left over last week after the Senate failed to pass three consecutive bills that would have at least allowed its members to claim that they had partially repealed the ACA. Most who voted for these replacement bills did so presumably because they believed their "base" understood and demanded that they do that. The ranking Republican and Democrat on the Senate health committee - Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Patty Murray of Washington, respectively - have also vowed to work together to improve Obamacare.
It isn't clear what will happen if Trump directs the agencies responsible for requesting and paying out the subsidies - the Department of Health and Human Services and the Treasury Department, respectively - to stop making payments while the lawsuit is pending. For those just above the poverty line, the subsidies lower annual deductibles to an average of $255 a year, compared to $3,600 for a traditional silver plan. But in the end, late in July, they fell short.
Some Republicans suggest that Trump's lack of experience has left it hard to coordinate and move legislation.
Asked if that was still McConnell's position, a spokesman for the Kentucky Republican said that if Senate Republicans change their mind on the rules, they'd make an announcement.
Mid-term elections 16 months from now may show whether Mr. Trump still has weight to throw around beyond the walls of the White House.
Their drive crashed last week.
Until a comprehensive solution comes out of Capitol Hill, we think Trump should continue subsidies for the poor but end them immediately for members of Congress.
"Let Obamacare fail...we'll just let Obamacare fail.We're not going to own it.I'm not going to own it.I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it".
