Trump suggests he may cut off insurer payments

President Trump threatened on Twitter to end what he called "bailouts" for health insurance companies — a term he has used to refer to the payments insurers receive for the Affordable Care Act subsidies they are required to give to low-income people.

Why it matters: The Trump administration has been making the payments on a month-to-month basis, but health insurers have been worried that Trump would cut them off after the defeat of the Senate's ACA repeal plans. Without those payments, insurers warn that ACA premiums will skyrocket even more — because they still have to provide the subsidies and have to recover their costs.

Carmakers and technology companies should freeze their race to field autonomous vehicles because "clearly the technology is not where it needs to be," said Raj Rajkumar, head of Carnegie Mellon University's leading self-driving laboratory.

What he said: Speaking a few hours after a self-driven vehicle ran over and killed a pedestrian in Arizona, Rajkumar said, "This isn't like a bug with your phone. People can get killed. Companies need to take a deep breath. The technology is not there yet. We need to keep people in the loop."
