To the contrary, I think correcting misinformation is not only relevant, but highly valuable. However, it does in fact appear there are 19 states now suing the administration over the discontinuance of subsidies.

It reminds me of the hooplah this summer over the repeal (which I now wish I hadn't wasted time following), at the end of which nothing happened.Attorney General Maura Healey said she was joining 18 other states, including Connecticut and Rhode Island, in suing the Trump administration, arguing that it is required by law to continue the payments, known as cost-sharing reductions.
Healey, a Democrat who has filed several lawsuits against the Trump administration, said the new court action seeks an injunction to ensure that the administration continues making payments.
