Trump's undermining of Obamacare violates the Constitution, new lawsuit charges (NBC News)
Thursday Aug 2nd, 2018
After congressional Republicans repeatedly failed last year to repeal the Affordable Care Act, President Trump promised to “let Obamacare implode” on its own.
A new lawsuit being filed Thursday argues that Trump’s efforts to make good on that promise violate the U.S. Constitution.
Trump has “waged a relentless effort to use executive action alone to undermine and, ultimately, eliminate the law,” the complaint charges, according to a draft obtained by NBC News. The lawsuit is being filed in Maryland federal court by the cities of Chicago, Columbus, Cincinnati and Baltimore.
