A bipartisan deal to help stabilize the health insurance marketplace after being thrown into chaos by Trump is already being sabotaged by conservative Republicans, even though they really don't have a viable option. This is not a bailout, contrary to the line Trump is feeding his Trumpsters. It's designed to help cover the gap in cost of those who don't qualify under other programs and cannot afford higher premium health care coverage.

Cutting the individual and employer mandate would further destabilize the market, requiring the subsidies to help cover the lost reserves provided by individuals dropping out of the market. Republicans just can't seem to figure out health care coverage, indicative by their failed attempts at repealing the ACA with no reasonable alternative.

Well, a lot of Republicans apparently think chaos is wonderful, and the fool in the White House thrives on it.
