Why a Bipartisan Deal on Health Care Took So Long

Updated on

A bipartisan deal to prop up Obamacare exchanges has “stalled out,” a top Senate Republican said Wednesday as President Donald Trump signaled his opposition.

Trump had created confusion with conflicting signals on the deal Wednesday until White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders declared his opposition. “We need something that goes a little further to get on board,” Sanders told reporters at an afternoon press briefing. She called the deal a "good step in the right direction."
