Suing the Trump administration to protect the ACA, health and the economy (The Hill)
Thursday Aug 2nd, 2018
In her op-ed, Dr. Leana Wen discusses why Baltimore City filed a suit against the Trump Adminisration for intentionally and unlawfully sabotaging the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and how it will affect the residents of Baltimore.
"We in Baltimore join Columbus, Ohio, Cincinnati, Ohio, Chicago, Illinois, and citizens in Charlottesville, Virginia, to express our deep concern about the consequences of sabotaging the ACA. In Baltimore, more than 10,000 residents are enrolled in plans purchased through the health insurance marketplace. Destabilizing the ACA could mean that 10,000 people in our city alone could become uninsured."
