5:48 am
so in response, the insurance companies are raising rates. they were anticipating this. they're already seeing the rates go up in many states. we've been looking into that. 20 to 25% is what the congressional budget office was predicting. in some states we've seen 30% for more which is what people will end up having to pay without the insurers getting the subsidies. republicans said all along, the subsidies were never authorized by congress and should have never been paid. that's the trump administration's argument. democrats, obviously, saying they think this is spiteful. they call it pointless sabotage. >> tracie potts live on capitol hill for us. thank you. reaction continues to pour in after president trump's tweets about pulling federal resources out of puerto rico. yesterday the president sent a series of tweets ultimately saying we cannot keep fema, the military and first responders in p.r. forever. most of the island remains in the dark. more than three weeks after
