Star Tribune: Maryland suit seeks to protect US health law from ‘sabotage’

BALTIMORE — Maryland’s attorney general has filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s administration for efforts he says are intended to undercut the nation’s health care law.

The lawsuit filed in federal court Thursday is the latest in a broad effort by attorneys general in various U.S. states pushing back against a “sabotage” of the Affordable Care Act following years of failed GOP attempts to fully repeal the Obama-era law.
