Trump will end ObamaCare subsidy payments
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said late Thursday that he and other AGs are ready to sue President Trump to defend the subsidies that help Americans obtain health insurance.
“I will not allow President Trump to once again use New York families as political pawns in his dangerous, partisan campaign to eviscerate the Affordable Care Act at any cost,” Schneiderman said in a statement.
“Again and again, President Trump has threatened to cut off these subsidies to undermine our heathcare system and force Congress to the negotiating table. That’s unacceptable.”
The statement came after The White House announced that President Trump would halt the crucial “cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies.”
The New York AG said he would be joined by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and 16 other attorneys general to stand up against the action by Trump to cut off subsidies for Obamacare.
“Our coalition of states stands ready to sue if President Trump cuts them off.”
