Four cities sue Trump administration over ACA rollback (Modern Healthcare)
Thursday Aug 2nd, 2018
Four major U.S. cities sued the Trump administration Thursday over its regulatory dismantling of the Affordable Care Act, claiming that federal actions are already overtaxing their health departments.
Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, joined liberal advocacy groups in the suit, filed in a U.S. District Court in Maryland, alleging that President Donald Trump and his administration "are deliberately trying to make the (ACA) fail." They maintain that these efforts will drain city budgets and resources to manage public health as coverage rates are predicted to drop.
