State AGs ready to sue Trump over health care subsidies

State AGs ready to sue Trump over health care subsidies”

Attorneys general from California and NY say they are prepared to sue the Trump administration to protect health-care subsides that the White House said would be cut off.

"Our lawsuit alleges that, by stopping these payments unilaterally, President Trump has acted arbitrarily and capriciously and in clear violation of his legal responsibilities under the Affordable Care Act".

Still, he said, "something needs to be done to ensure costs for employers to provide quality health care coverage for their employees is stabilized". But it will take time to get details on this executive order into action. The payments - known as cost-sharing reductions - are required by Obamacare. "That's what we on the local level need to counteract". His only goal has been to destroy the Affordable Care Act.

"We are in the midst of a public health crisis, in which 91 Americans a day are dying from an opioid overdose".

But there are three elements to the executive order.

Cuomo added: "This is just the latest action that targets NY following congress's failure to renew the child health insurance plan and the Health Centers Program, putting our children and the most vulnerable among us at risk to lose access to health care".

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said the president's order is "a win-win for Texans struggling from Obamacare's skyrocketing premiums and lack of access to quality health care".

"You have to ask why are you targeting low-income people?' Vitale said".

U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, criticized the executive order, calling it an attempt by Trump to sabotage the Affordable Care Act because Republicans haven't been able to devise a plan to replace it.

Murphy spokesman Dan Bryan said Friday Murphy would nominate an attorney general who would take "all measures" to "protect health care". Short term, Congress must work to improve the Affordable Care to lower costs, insure more people and reduce the price of prescription drugs.

Lance said he has long argued that funding for the program is unconstitutional.
