New York, California threaten to sue over health-care subsidies

After President Trump's executive order on health care Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman reacted to the measure. The payments - known as cost-sharing reductions - are required by Obamacare.

"The bailout of insurance companies through these unlawful payments is yet another example of how the previous administration abused taxpayer dollars and skirted the law to prop up a broken system", the White House said in a statement.

"The American people deserve better".

"Again and again, President Trump has threatened to cut off these subsidies to undermine our heathcare system and force Congress to the negotiating table. We are now evaluating what this announcement may mean for individual consumer plans in the future". "I will continue fighting to keep quality health care accessible and affordable for all New Mexicans".

"Today, health plans are competing on how efficiently and effectively they provide care, but the president's executive order, if carried out, would take us backward by letting plans once again compete on how few services they cover and ignore state health insurance protections".

"Having failed to persuade a Republican Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), President Trump now appears to be trying to accomplish by executive fiat what he could not through Congress - treating New Yorkers as political pawns in his effort to sabotage the health care market".

Schneiderman accused Trump of making his decision to cut the ACA subsidies based on politics and his animus toward former President Barack Obama, for whom the federal law is called Obamacare, rather than on an understanding of the impact of those cuts.

Chris Wallace, president of the Texas Association of Business, said his group was still studying the president's order.

U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio, applauded Trump "for taking action to improve access, increase choices and lower costs for Americans' health care".

Enrollment for 2018 insurance under the Affordable Care Act is set to begin November 1 and will last six weeks through December 15.
