State AGs ready to sue Trump over health care subsidies

President Donald Trump's announcement that he will send cost-sharing subsidies in the Affordable Care Act will affect more than 150,000 people in New Jersey, costing them more than $166 million in benefits.

Leading Democrats in Congress excoriated the president's executive orders.

"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".

Trump's executive order isn't expected to trigger any immediate changes in USA health care policy - or affect coverage in 2018 - because the measures that it calls for could take months or longer to implement.

"The noise, (and) the negativity, is going to impact enrollment", Colvin said.

"Amazingly, we have a president who is trying to destroy the American health care system". Before the Affordable Care Act, more than one-third of individual market health plans chose not to cover mental health services, and almost half chose not to cover substance use treatment.

Schneiderman said he expected other states to join in the suits. NY stands to lose more than $870 million in subsidies.

Meanwhile, opinions of Trump's executive order among the area's congressional delegation appeared to be divided along partisan lines.

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. In May, he and Becerra led a coalition of 18 Attorneys General and moved to intervene in House v. Price to protect millions of Americans' access to affordable health care.

"Sadly, instead of working to lower health costs for Americans, it seems President Trump will singlehandedly hike Americans' health premiums", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement.
