FILE - In this March 21, 2017, file photo, President Donald Trump, followed by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, leaves Capitol Hill Washington after rallying support for the Republican health care overhaul with GOP lawmakers. Going into this week’s federal budget battle, the White House toyed with a hardball tactic to force congressional Democrats to negotiate on President Donald Trump’s priorities: They just might eliminate billions of dollars in disputed “Obamacare” subsidies. But a study out April 25, 2017, from a nonpartisan group suggests that could backfire. Stopping the Affordable Care Act payments at issue may actually wind up costing the federal government billions more than it would save. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
