This undated photo made available by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows a strain of Candida auris cultured in a petri dish at a CDC laboratory. On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, New York state health officials provided new details about a continuing outbreak of the infection. The count is 44 now, up from a half dozen last fall.

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)
