Two U.S. senators from both parties are close to finalizing a bipartisan deal to shore up the health insurance exchanges created under Obamacare, the chambers top Democrat said on Thursday.
The move, which Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said was on the verge of completion, would stabilize the market for individuals who buy their own insurance plans on the federal or state-based exchanges.

This is why the talk of letting ObamaCare collapse was wishful thinking.
I’m not sure why so many people thought Congress would just let Obamacare implode. They are going to keep throwing money at it to “stabilize” it.
bipartisan = every Rat,McLame and Collins.
It sounds like a funding bill; one that cannot originate in the Senate.
The exchanges are pulling out because they are losing millions. “Shoring” them up is giving a permanent fiscal IV to something that needs to die.
“a bipartisan deal to shore up the health insurance exchanges created under Obamacare”
Yeah, spending billions more propping up this CommieCare disaster would be a brilliant use of taxpayer money.
In before the “at least it would be getting something done” crowd.
If not repealed, I vote straight D in 2018.
Let the chips fall where they may.
Why the hell would you do that?!
The RATS just figured out NOW is the best deal they are going to get.
All because of Judge Moore (and McCain sun setting)
Trump should veto.
Sounds to me like the Senate is trying to spend money, something it can't do. The Constitution is very explicit: spending bills must originate in the House.
This happens all the time. They can submit this to the house. The house eventually puts a number on a bill and presents their bill.....which may be the exact same thing.
Let the chips fall where they may. Think of it as letting your teenager spend the night in jail, even though it may cost you dearly.
Tough love is tough on everybody.
And the sad part: I’ve not voted for a democrat since 1972, when I voted for Dixie Lee Ray.
The good news is that Trump will finally get to sign a healthcare bill, which is really all he wants to do.
Protesting socialist by electing communists is a not a good idea.
Just mentioning that Alexander-Murray is close caused some insurers stocks to rise, Bloomberg reports."
Sing it Gold Diggers Of
"We're in the money, taxpayers' money. We'll get a lot of what it takes to get along!"
my uninformed impression has been that the House is not amenable to this kind of nonsense. I may easily be missing something...
