Bipartisan deal to continue subsidies Trump ended. But ...


Everyone's reporting that Sens. Patty Murray and Lamar Alexander have struck a bipartisan deal on to continue federal subsidies for health coverage that Donald Trump cut off.

Well, sure, two reasonable human beings could reach a deal like this. But there are Republican senators, the House Republican majority and the guy in the White House who don't necessarily fall in that demographic.

The president says he's on board (a day after he issued contrary orders), but Washington Post says other congressional Republicans aren't so certain.

If the deal does happen, it would solve a lot of potential problems for Arkansas, particularly with loosening fo waivers for specific state plans. Sometime today Benji Hardy plans to write more about Gov. Asa Hutchinson's somewhat perplexing statements on the position the state currently finds itself in.
