From Tom's Reading List

Los Angeles Times: As Trump mulls cutting off Obamacare aid, Senate begins bipartisan approach — "Even as President Trump renews his threat to undermine the Affordable Care Act, senior Republican and Democratic senators announced plans Tuesday to begin work on a new bipartisan effort to stabilize the 2010 healthcare law, often called Obamacare. The move — by Senate Health Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), the committee’s senior Democrat — does not ensure the end of the GOP’s long Obamacare repeal campaign."
