Democrats Are Launching A Legal Fight To Save Obamacare's Subsidy Payments

Pennsylvania AG Josh Shapiro

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers-not to mention millions of Americans-rely on these subsidies, and now, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is suing the Trump administration in an effort to block the White House from spiking them.

Becerra's office is joined by the attorneys general of Kentucky, Massachusetts and CT in the lawsuit.

The attorney generals filing the lawsuit represent California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Oregon, North Carolina, Illinois, New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Minnesota, New Mexico, Washington, Iowa, and the District of Columbia. "Massive subsidy payments to their pet insurance companies has stopped". "It's past time President Trump learned he doesn't get to pick and choose which laws he'll follow and which bills he'll pay".

The complaint will seek a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction and permanent injunction requiring the cost-sharing reduction payments be made.

"Undermining the Affordable Care Act has been Donald Trump's and many Republicans' plans for a long time", Becerra said.

States' attorneys general are lining up to sue the federal government to continue making cost sharing reduction payments to insurers, which President Trump Thursday evening indicated that he would be suspending.

Al-Kuwari in final round of Unesco election
Khattab came third in the ballot after Qatar's Hamad al Kawari and France's Audrey Azoulay, who won 20 and 13 votes respectively. Arab states had been lobbying hard to get an Arab candidate elected as UNESCO's director-general.

He wrote "ObamaCare is a broken mess. Long term, we must go forward and join almost every other major country by guaranteeing health care as a right through a Medicare-for-all program".

In a statement, the White House said that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, based on guidance from the U.S. Department of Justice, has concluded that the so-called cost-sharing reduction payments.

He said the Republican president's decision to end subsidies to insurers for low-income participants would cripple the state's health care market, drive up insurance costs and cause poor people to go untreated.

Harris called the action "devastating". "This is a backhanded effort to go around the congressional process and undermine the health care law that millions of people have come to depend on".

Trump's executive orders are expected to increase insurance premiums and potentially cost the government an extra $2.3 billion next year, according to NPR.
