President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to stop paying them, saying he was prepared to let Obamacare fail.

His latest action raised concerns about chaos in insurance markets. She says the move will increase the deficit, and the Congressional Budget Office estimates it will cost the government $194 billion over a decade.

"The president is not going to continue to throw good money after bad, give $7 billion to insurance companies unless something changes about Obamacare that would justify it", Graham said, trying to explain Trump's announcement. "This enables Covered California and other marketplaces to provide coverage that truly matters and makes it more affordable for these consumers to see a doctor when they get sick or injured".

Trump is aiming to draw Democrats eager to save Obamacare to the negotiating table. Frustrated by the failure of his fellow Republicans who control both houses of Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare, Trump has taken several steps to chip away at it.

The Trump administration faced accusations that it was sabotaging ObamaCare even before the latest moves.

A Republican senator said President Trump's order to scrap subsidy payments for ObamaCare customers will hurt "vulnerable people" from receiving health care. But on August 1 the U.S. Court of Appeals Court in Washington, DC, allowed 17 states, led by California, to join the case to argue for reversing the lower court decision.

In response to Trump's abrupt decision, the attorneys general of several states, including New York, California, Kentucky, Massachusetts and CT have united to file a lawsuit asking a federal court to force Trump to make the payment, Reuters reports. "This is an effort simply to blow up the system".

Other lawsuits are also being filed around the nation, and the Attorney General said he expects there may be some consolidation later.

Here's a look at four of the most significant areas where Mr. Trump has acted to undo his predecessors' accomplishments, and where those actions now stand.

Obama's relative silence frustrates some Democrats, but the alternative might not achieve anything for them as they search for new voices to rise up and challenge Republicans and Trump.

On Thursday, Trump signed an executive order directing three federal departments to consider making regulations to expand access to lower-cost, less comprehensive health care plans, which health policy experts have warned could undermine the individual insurance marketplaces.

The Affordable Care Act has been under attack in 2017, but at least so far, the federal government hasn't passed legislation repealing the ACA, better known as Obamacare.

Trump offered an invitation for Democratic leaders to come to the White House, while also lashing out at them.

LIASSON: That's true. And if you're a Trump supporter and you didn't delve into the details, you might think that he got rid of the Iran deal. But they're always a bloc vote against everything.

But Trump is ticking through each of Obama's policy achievements - foreign and domestic - and trying to dismantle them.

In 2014, the House of Representatives sued the Obama administration in House v. Burwell (now House v. Price) claiming that the cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments to insurers had never been appropriated by Congress and were thus illegal.
