Schneiderman to Trump on Obamacare cuts: "See you in court"

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro Sues Trump Administration Over New Contraception Rules

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro joined a list of law enforcement officials from across the country and women's groups in filing a lawsuit Wednesday against the Trump administration over the new contraceptive rules.

Jetter says in other words it is a game of chicken right now.

He says Trump is in clear violation of his legal responsibilities under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. "That money was a subsidy and nearly you can say a payoff to insurance companies and what we have to do is come up with great healthcare", said Trump. Millions who bought insurance through the Affordable Care Act marketplaces may be unable to afford coverage if his move drives up premiums further, and insurers may seek to pull out of the market.

The ACA relies on two types of subsidies: premium subsidies, paid to people with an income less than four times the poverty level, and CSRs, paid directly to participating insurers to reduce the out-of-pocket costs for people with an income below 250 percent of the poverty level.

Schneiderman said ending the subsidies is an attempt by Trump to "blow up" the nation's health care system. "I and many of my attorney general colleagues will fight vigorously to ensure Californians and all Americans as taxpayers receive the healthcare the law provides".

New York's attorney general Eric Schneiderman scolded Trump.

"His effort to gut these subsidies with no warning or even a plan to contain the fallout is breathtakingly reckless", he said.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Friday he is suing the Trump administration to stop the federal Department of Health and Human Services from withholding cost-sharing subsidies that help low- and middle-income people pay for health coverage under the federal health care law.

According to the Trump administration, Congress did not appropriate funds for CSR payments.

NY attorney general Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, said he anticipates continuing with the litigation on a case that is been on hold for a while.

The Democratic prosecutor said Friday that NY is part of a California lawsuit and that the Republican president's decision to end subsidies to insurers for low-income participants would cripple the state's health care market, drive up insurance costs and cause poor people to go untreated. Critics scoffed at that. "Just because he's in the White House doesn't mean he can make those decisions".
