Not all of us can have the pleasure of discussing health care over drinks with Sam Baker, but here's the next best thing: You can watch a video of Sam Baker having drinks and discussing health care. His main takeaways on what's next:
- President Trump could cut off the Affordable Care Act's cost-sharing payments to insurers at any time.
- The health insurance markets want stability, and we don't have it right now.
- Everyone will be watching the Senate bipartisan talks on an ACA stabilization package, but there aren't enough likely supporters to pass it by themselves.
The bottom line: The health care battle may be taking a break, but it never ends.
