    To get the 60 Votes, the U.S. Senate has formed a Bi-partisan commission to shore-up and stabilize the individual markets for 2018. Their goal is to start working after Summer vacation, which will be September 4th. To be finished before September 27th..before ObamaCare plans are "locked down"...and Congress takes another week break.

    Committee chairman, Senator Lamar Alexander says:

    "I hope to get a consensus about how to stabilize the individual market, keep premiums down, keep insurance companies in the individual market so that people can buy affordable insurance in 2018."

    Keep premiums down? TOO LATE!

    Keep Insurance Companies in the Market? TOO LATE!


    IN ADDITION..

    All proposals to date have been much ado about nothing. It's as if they haven't talked to anyone who knows about insurance. Even an ASO plan which is really what Medicare is requires the same thing.....all eligibles enrolled, no adverse selection, method of funding. Then deal with run amuck RX and procedure prices.
