EXCERPT:

When former President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into legislation 10 years ago on March 23, it was one of the most monumental moments in U.S. history in terms of health care….

Today, the law also called Obamacare continues to be attacked by Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration to repeal the act. A lawsuit backed by the administration to challenge the act’s constitutionality remains scheduled to be heard in the Supreme Court later this year.

But that still didn’t deter some Maryland federal and state officials and health care advocates to celebrate the act’s 10-year passage Monday.

The Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative hosted a conference call to continue fighting for the Affordable Care Act, which has allowed more than 400,000 Marylanders to obtain health insurance.
