Trump calls on senators to renew bipartisan efforts to stabilize ACA

President Donald Trump is urging U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., to revive bipartisan talks about ACA legislation, according to The Hill.

The senators helped develop a bipartisan healthcare plan in 2017 and 2018 to stabilize the federal health law. The plan was met with challenges throughout the legislative process, including the divisive issue of restrictions on abortion funding, according to The Hill.

Now, Mr. Trump wants  the lawmakers to revive their work, a Democratic source told the publication.

Ms. Murray reportedly is open to the idea.

Her aide told The Hill, "Senator Murray has consistently said she is still at the table ready to work with anyone on either side of the aisle to lower families’ healthcare costs, improve quality of care and roll back the president’s sabotage as the original Alexander-Murray agreement was intended to do."

Mr. Alexander said in a statement obtained by The Hill that he is willing to revive talks if Democrats modify their position on abortion funding.
