this presssed for your right to know: House Files Litigation Over President’s Unilateral Actions on Health Care Law | Speaker.gov

WASHINGTON, DCHouse Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today announced that the House of Representatives – consistent with the House-passed resolution H.Res. 676 – has filed litigation over President Obama’s unilateral actions on his health care law:

“Time after time, the president has chosen to ignore the will of the American people and re-write federal law on his own without a vote of Congress. That’s not the way our system of government was designed to work. If this president can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well. The House has an obligation to stand up for the Constitution, and that is exactly why we are pursuing this course of action.”

NOTE: On July 30, 2014, the House of Representatives passed a resolution authorizing the House of Representatives to initiate litigation to challenge President Obama’s decision to unilaterally change various provisions of the health care law. The suit filed today against the Health & Human Services (HHS) and Treasury Secretaries – a copy of which can be downloaded here – will address two Executive Branch actions:
