The action represents Trump's most aggressive move yet to dismantle ObamaCare, after GOP efforts to repeal and replace the health-care law failed this year.

Trump has repeatedly threatened to cut off the disbursements to insurers, known as cost sharing reduction (CSR) payments, which are worth an estimated $7 billion this year. The White House said Thursday night that the administration "cannot lawfully" make the payments.
