BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland’s attorney general on Thursday filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s administration for recurring efforts he says are intended to dismantle the national health care law and chase people away from coverage.
The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court of Maryland comes as the latest push to scrap the Affordable Care Act has pressed ahead in Texas. Last week, 20 Republican-controlled states asked a federal judge to bring the law to a halt, arguing that the entire health statute was rendered unconstitutional after Congress repealed the “individual mandate” that required most Americans to buy insurance or risk a tax penalty.
Democrat Brian Frosh, the mid-Atlantic state’s attorney general, is seeking a declaratory judgment in U.S. District Court of Maryland that ACA is indeed constitutional and the Trump administration must stop trying to “sabotage” the Obama-era Affordable Care Act.twenty, eridani, snot and 2 othersjwirr, Pacco Fransisco like this
