Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, on Monday, joined 16 attorneys general to file a motion to intervene in a lawsuit to protect the Affordable Care Act.
The lawsuit, Texas vs U.S., attempts to dismantle the A-C-A. With Monday’s motion to intervene, the attorneys general argue that this lawsuit imperils health care coverage and funding for all Americans, particularly more vulnerable groups like seniors, children, and people with chronic medical conditions or disabilities.
Healey says despite repeated attempts to sabotage the Affordable Care Act, it remains the law of the land.
In their motion to intervene, the attorneys general allege the ACA has not been repealed by the passage of the Republican tax break bill and its constitutionality has been upheld by the Supreme Court.
