Trump. after threatening to work with Dems on health care, returns to demands of conservatives on health care

While Trump has “threatened” to work with Democrats on health care and attacked the Freedom Caucus in his “own” party, now the White House seems to be supporting a revised “TrumpCare” bill that seems more conservative than the RyanCare bill that was defeated ten days ago.

The new bill might allow insurers more leeway in charging higher premiums to people with pre-existing conditions while not allowing them to be denied coverage altogether; and it might allow states to opt out of coverage requirements for some items, like drug addiction, mental illness or reproduction-related services.

Bloomberg has a story here.

NBC News has a recent detailed story with two videos, here.

Yet Trump, according to the New York Post, had credited himself for tripping up the GOP on the Ryan bill, story.
