A coalition of roughly 40 House Republicans and Democrats plan to unveil a slate of Obamacare fixes Monday they hope will gain traction after the Senate’s effort to repeal the law imploded. The Problem Solvers caucus, led by Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) and Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), is fronting the effort to stabilize the ACA markets, according to multiple sources. But other centrist members, including Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), and several other lawmakers from the New Democrat Coalition and the GOP’s moderate Tuesday Group are also involved. Their plan focuses on immediately stabilizing the insurance market and then pushing for Obamacare changes that have received bipartisan backing in the past. The most significant proposal is funding for Obamacare’s cost-sharing subsidies. Insurers rely on these payments – estimated to be $7 billion this year – to reduce out-of-pocket costs for their poorest Obamacare customers.President Trump has repeatedly threatened to cut off the payments, deriding them as a “bailout” for insurance companies. White House counselor Kelly Conway said on Sunday that Trump will decide “this week” whether to scrap the subsidies -- which could make the markets implode.The bipartisan working group also wants to change Obamacare's employer mandate so that it applies only to companies with more than 500 workers. Currently companies with at least 50 workers can be hit with a tax penalty if they don't provide coverage to their workers. The group also wants to create a federal stability fund – dollar amount unspecified -- that states can tap to reduce premiums and other costs for people with extremely expensive medical needs. Both the Senate and House repeal packages contained similar pots of money.The bipartisan proposal also calls for scrapping Obamacare’s medical-device tax, an idea that has received bipartisan support in the past.Finally, the working group is seeking greater flexibility for state innovation. Obamacare already allows state to seek waivers from coverage rules, but the lawmakers want additional guidance on how states can take advantage of them.The roll out of their stabilization agenda follows months of private meetings between various members involved in the House’s centrist caucuses about ways to stabilize Obamacare if the GOP’s repeal effort sputtered. The push was intensified after the Senate’s repeal collapsed in the wee hours of Friday morning when Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and John McCain (R-Ariz.) joined with all Democrats to reject the GOP’s “skinny repeal."
Incoming Chief of Staff John Kelly will bring a former Department of Homeland Security staffer to the White House, according to an administration official and two other people familiar with the arrangement. Kirstjen Nielsen, Kelly's chief of staff at the DHS, will follow him to the White House, the sources said. CNN reported earlier Saturday that she is likely to become deputy chief of staff to Kelly, but the sources cautioned that her title is still in flux. "She'll be the one person Kelly brings with him," an administration official said. The White House did not immediately comment. Kelly was tapped to replace outgoing Chief of Staff and former Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus on Friday. Priebus said during an interview on CNN that he gave President Donald Trump his resignation on Thursday.His departure from the DHS has created uncertainty over whom will be named to replace him atop the department. Among those reportedly rumored as candidates for the post are Thomas Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, an outspoken opponent of illegal immigration, as well as Texas Rep. Michael McCaul, the Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee who has emerged as a leading candidate for the post.
Shehbaz Sharif will replace Nawaz Sharif, while the former petroleum minister will serve as temporary prime minister in the interim.
House Speaker Paul Ryan praised outgoing White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for his contributions to the Republican Party and the country in a statement released Friday, saying he "left it all out on the field."“Reince Priebus has left it all out on the field, for our party and our country," the Republican leader said of Priebus, touting his Wisconsin roots and years serving as the leader of the Republican National Committee.Ryan added, "He has served the president and the American people capably and passionately. He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class. I could not be more proud to call Reince a dear friend."Priebus's departure comes after days of West Wing infighting spilling into public view, including Thursday when a crude and verbally explicit interview with White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci ripping Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon was published by The New Yorker.Despite the recent turmoil, Priebus cast the departure as an amicable split during an interview on CNN Friday.“This is not like a situation where there is a bunch of ill-will feelings,” Priebus said. Ryan also sent his congratulations to John Kelly, the homeland security secretary who was tapped by President Donald Trump Friday afternoon to replace Priebus as White House chief of staff. "I congratulate Secretary Kelly on his appointment, and look forward to working with him to advance our agenda," Ryan said.
Gen. John Kelly said Friday he was “honored to be asked to serve as the Chief of Staff” to President Donald Trump in his first public comment since being tapped to replace Reince Priebus. “I have been fortunate to have served my country for more than 45 years — first as a Marine and then as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security,” Kelly said in a statement released Friday. Kelly, who has been serving as Secretary of Homeland Security under Trump, also thanked officials at the DHS for their continued work in serving the country.Kelly wrote: “To the tremendous men and women of DHS, I thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Secretary. When I left the Marines, I never thought I would find as committed, as professional, as patriotic a group of individuals. I was wrong. You accomplish great things everyday defending our nation and I know your exceptional work will continue.”President Trump announced on Twitter Friday afternoon that Kelly would be taking over for Priebus as White House chief of staff. "I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration," Trump wrote.He added, "I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country. We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!"The news came after days of rampant speculation that Priebus was on the out’s with the administration and tense public feuding between the outgoing chief of staff, new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci and chief strategist Steve Bannon.
