States seek to advocate for low-cost insurance in lawsuit

The 16 attorneys general, led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, filed a motion to intervene in the case pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

The subsidy payments help cover out-of-pocket medical expenses for low-income Americans.

The attorneys general cited Trump's own words, quoting him saying he was willing to let the health care law "explode".

Attacks have been recorded in at least 150 countries, including the UK, Russia, Ukraine, India, China, Italy, and Egypt. They handed me some papers which showed I was online at the time and chatting with my friends on the school network.

Trump is using the payments as "political bargaining chips", meaning states and their residents can't rely on the administration to represent their position, they said. The situation is extremely urgent, the Democratic officials argued, because state insurance regulators are making critical choices that will shape their insurance markets for the next year.

Attorneys general and proponents of the PPACA have said the threats to withhold the payments have already wreaked havoc in the marketplaces and are part of the reason some health care consumers have seen double-digit rate increases. They took a lead role to successfully block Trump's executive orders restricting travel from some Muslim-majority countries, and they are also resisting efforts to roll back environmental regulations.

House Republicans contend that the federal payments are illegal because they were not authorized by Congress when the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010.

WikiLeaks Offering $100000 For Donald Trump's 'Comey Tapes'
Trump's tweet came the morning after he asserted Comey had told him three times that he wasn't under FBI investigation. She remains incredulous, she said, that he wrote it - and that it may have served as the basis for Comey's firing.

A judge ruled in the plaintiffs' favor last May, and the Obama administration subsequently appealed, but the case has been on hold since President Donald Trump was elected to allow his administration time to decide how to proceed.

Tow of the AGs, Frosh and Kentucky's Andy Beshear, are Democratic attorneys general in states with Republican governors.

"Because of an intervening presidential election, the current parties appear ready to agree to allow the injunction to stand, without giving this Court the opportunity to determine whether the district court had either jurisdiction to enter it or a legal basis to enjoin the permanent appropriation that Congress meant to provide", the motion reads.

Trump decries 'single greatest witch hunt' in US history
He added that although he's "not a legal authority", but that "the intelligence committee will get the facts". Rosenstein briefed USA senators on Thursday, but made no public comments.

The litigation could become moot if Congress passes new health care legislation to replace the PPACA.
