U.S. cities sue Trump over ‘sabotage’ of Obamacare


Four major U.S. cities on Thursday filed a lawsuit contending that President Donald Trump’s administration is unconstitutionally seeking to undermine Obamacare by failing to faithfully execute the healthcare law.

The lawsuit filed by the cities of Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, at the federal court in Baltimore, alleged that the President Trump is “waging a relentless campaign to sabotage and, ultimately, to nullify the law.”


The lawsuit argued that because Congress has not repealed the Affordable Care Act, as Obamacare is legally known, the U.S. Constitution requires Trump to take care that it, like other laws, is “faithfully executed.”

As contained in the complaint, Trump’s administration’s actions are forcing them to spend more on uncompensated care for their residents by driving up the rate of uninsured individuals.

The Affordable Care Act was enacted in 2010 under Democratic President Barack Obama. The law extended health insurance to some 20 million Americans.


The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
