The lawsuit was filed on February 26, 2018, by the Attorneys General of Texas and Wisconsin. They are joined by the Attorneys General of 18 other states. The lawsuit seeks to eliminate the "individual mandate" requiring health insurance coverage. The plaintiffs say that because the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, which was signed in late December 2017, eliminated the tax penalty for failing to maintain health insurance coverage, it also eliminated the legal basis for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) individual mandate, and possibly all other aspects of the PPACA . . .
