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.
Attorney General Brian Frosh is seeking a declaratory judgment in U.S. District Court that ACA is constitutional. He says the Trump administration’s “attempts to sabotage this life-saving law and jeopardize the health of Marylanders who rely on it cannot stand.”
