I think the disruptive "gig economy" businesses where independent contractors offer services through companies Uber and Airbnb is only going to hasten the demise of America's already-rare practice of employer-provided health insurance.

President Trump promised to eliminate the law on his first day in office, but he has been unable to get Congress to deliver. The wrecking squad works in the shadows knowing that if the public were given time to absorb the damage in store for millions of Americans, the pushback would be enormous.

A possible compromise may be a longer off-ramp for phasing out Medicaid expansion funding in return for tighter per capita caps. They worry that sharing any one piece out of context could give a distorted impression of what the final bill will include. So far, Susan Collins of ME has stood honorably as one of her party's firmest skeptics of this fiasco-in-the-making, but even she seems to be wobbling. While many Democrats in Congress say this is a bad thing, many Republican legislators seem to shrug off the lack of transparency. "Clever", said an aide to a top Democratic senator.

Trump met with senators this week at the White House to talk about health care, and he supports a quick timeline, according to one senior administration official. Leibenluft spoke before the horror of Wednesday's shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and four others, which properly commanded the nation's attention.
