After the attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare failed last week, there was a lot of discussion about what this meant for President Trump's future agenda: how it could complicate tax reform or get in the way of an infrastructure spending bill.
Lost in all the political noise was the fact that millions of Americans are still covered under the plan, and its future rests largely in the hands of the Republican administration and Congress.
The House, for example, could refuse to provide subsidies to insurance companies so they can offer plans to low-income people. Without that financial assistance, insurers might stop offering coverage. It's the kind of uncertainty that could drive insurers out the marketplace in many states.
