Former President arack obama's signature on the health insurance reform bill from Mach 23, 2010.

Columbus is one of four cities suing the Trump Administration for its plans to undermine the Affordable care Act.

The suit is based on the "take care" clause in the U.S. Constitution that details the President's responsibility to, "take care that the laws be faithfully executed."

Critics say the Trump Administation has undercut the ACA by removing funding for naivgators who assist civilians in choosing their health plans, getting rid of the individual mandate, and suspending the risk adjustment program designed to help smooth out bumps for insurance companies.

Questions surround whether a president is obligated to enfrce laws he or she deems unconstitutional.

Today on All Sides, we discuss the state of the Affordable Care Act and what the future holds for American health coverage.
