Attorney General Frosh vows to continue fight on Affordable Care Act

Press Release, Office of the Maryland Attorney General

BALTIMORE, MD (December 15, 2018) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today released the following statement:

“The Texas Court’s decision striking down the entire Affordable Care Act will have a devastating impact on Maryland families. Hundreds of thousands will lose health insurance coverage altogether, and millions more who have pre-existing conditions will be endangered as well. Our lawsuit to protect the ACA continues here in Maryland. We will continue our fight to defend its constitutionality and to protect the health and lives of our people who depend upon it.”

On September 13, 2018, Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland against the Trump Administration, seeking a declaratory judgment that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is constitutional. That lawsuit is pending.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
