In the President’s pursuit to undo the Affordable Care Act (ACA), many have joined the lawsuit to defend the ACA. Including the city of Columbus, Ohio, who recently joined the combat against the Trump Administration over the ACA.
Columbus is suing President Donald Trump and his administration for allegedly violating the “take care” clause of the U.S. Constitution. Plaintiffs say it’s an unconstitutional sabotage of the ACA. Columbus Attorney Zach Klein reports that the administration is also violating the “Administrative Procedures Act,” which makes guidelines on how administrative agencies can create rules and regulations.
A 130 page complaint recorded the administration’s numerous attempts to stop the ACA. This includes eliminating protections that it guarantees, driving up costs, attempting to destabilize exchanges, directing agencies to undercut the act, and preventing citizens from insurance enrollment.
Other cities suing the administration over the ACA include Baltimore, Cincinnati, Chicago, and Charlottesville.
