The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in Texas and on it Tennessee joins Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, signed into law by President Donald Trump on December 22, 2017, eliminated the tax penalty of the ACA, without eliminating the individual mandate itself, according to lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Texas.

"The whole crux of that regulatory scheme rests on the essential component of being able to compel Americans to purchase health insurance or pay this tax penalty", he explained.

"Texans have known all along that Obamacare is unlawful, and a divided Supreme Court's approval rested exclusively on the flimsy support of Congress' authority to tax". Slatery III announced Monday that, without the individual mandate, the law is unconstitutional and he wants to kill it.

He was referring to a 2012 Supreme Court decision in which Chief Justice John Roberts said the Constitution protected the individual mandate by authorizing federal taxation.

In 2018, premiums on the individual market spiked by 36 percent in Wisconsin.

Paxton argues the Supreme Court's first two rulings were "rested exclusively on the flimsy support of Congress authority to tax".

"This vengeful lawsuit is yet another partisan attack on health care that threatens Kansans' care", Brad Woodhouse, that group's campaign director, said in a news release.

Nintendo Looking To Increase Switch Sales With New Peripherals And Not Revisions
Even Nintendo itself has said that Switch's second year will be "crucial" in determining how successful it is. PC Mag speculates that Nintendo could just keep releasing peripherals under the Labo brand for years to come.

But as the country focuses on other issues, the party continues its work to undermine the health care law, while offering the American people nothing better in its place.

To be clear, that is 18 percent above and beyond any other premium increases.

Insurers are also fleeing the market in droves, forcing 75,000 Wisconsinites off their plans a year ago alone.

States that don't allow short-term policies, including New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont and Washington, would see more limited increases, according to the projections.

A sign on an insurance store advertises Obamacare in San Ysidro, San Diego. Administration officials say this would create an incentive for insurers to hold costs to below that upper limit. The $50 million state portion will be paid for by savings in the state's behemoth Medical Assistance program, officials say.

"Gov. Walker did authorize the lawsuit because it questions the constitutionality of Obamacare", Walker spokeswoman Amy Hasenberg told MacIver News. "With no remaining legitimate basis for the law, it is time that Americans are finally free from the stranglehold of Obamacare, once and for all".

Come 2019, the number of people without health insurance will rise by almost 5 million, while millions more will enroll in "short-term" plans, according to Urban Institute research released Monday.
