The sudden lack of subsidy payments could cause a rise in middle-class health care costs as high as 20 percent. That’s according to a report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, due to President Trump’s announcement that the administration would cease funding the cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments. Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA) have a bill to fund those subsidies for the next two years, while offering states more flexibility on insurance plans. President-elect of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners Julie Mix McPeak says while this is a good first step, it pushes finding a solution for Obamacare to another day. McPeak joins Soledad O’Brien from Nashville to discuss how rescinding the subsidies will affect cost and access, what biggest concerns of the insurance markets and how middle-class families, who don’t qualify for subsidies, could end up footing the bill.
