White House outlines changes it wants to see in Alexander-Murray bill

Significant changes must be made to the Alexander-Murray bill in order to receive President Donald Trump's approval, an unnamed White House official told The Hill.

President Trump initially supported the Alexander-Murray bill Tuesday afternoon before later tweeting he could "never support" a bill that funds cost-sharing subsidies. However, the official said President Trump could approve the bill if certain concessions regarding ACA regulations were made, according to The Hill.

"These benefits should include relief from the individual and employer mandates; an expansion of affordable coverage options, such as the ones referenced in last week's executive order; a greater ability for middle-income families to control their healthcare dollars; and meaningful flexibility for states to allow their residents to escape onerous ObamaCare requirements," the official said, according to The Hill.
