Four cities, including Cincinnati, are suing President Donald Trump and other U.S. officials over the Trump administration’s efforts to undermine the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The lawsuit claims that Trump and his administration “are waging a relentless campaign to sabotage” the ACA by discouraging Americans from enrolling in health care plans, working to raise prices and reduce the available choices and using funds Congress allocated to support the ACA to attack it.

By weakening the ACA, the administration is driving insurers out of the ACA exchanges, raising premiums and causing more people to be underinsured or even uninsured, the cities argue in their lawsuit.
