Emails Show White House Adviser Pushed Insurance Industry Obamacare Bailout



Newly released emails show a key White House adviser intervened on behalf of the health insurance industry after an executive repeatedly warned that massive premium hikes were coming unless the administration expanded an ObamaCare program that Republicans call an industry "bailout." 

The insurance industry ultimately got a more "generous" offer from the administration—one that Republicans warn could transfer potentially billions of taxpayer dollars into the Affordable Care Act to bail out insurance companies.
