Earlier this morning, we reported that “In An Aggressive Push, Trump Seeks Friday Passage Of Revised Healthcare Bill“, and has instructed Mike Pence to rattle the cages of both conservative and moderate Republicans, to see what the bid/ask difference is. Among the things the White House was willing to concede on: i) granting a waver to States from some, if not all, Obamacare insurance rules including the minimum benefits; and ii) a $115 billion “stability fund” for the states would be narrowed to be spent specifically on high-risk pools, as a form of coverage for those with pre-existing conditions.
Some expressed optimism that Trump’s renewed interest to pass Trump/Ryancare could take place as soon as this Friday, with Rep. Chris Collins adding “this could move fairly quickly.”
Freedom Caucus leaders said they’re open to the idea but want to see the legislative text, meanwhile White House officials were hoping to send the text to Capitol Hill as early as Tuesday night.
