House Republicans File Executive Overreach Lawsuit
By Hadley Heath
In July, the House of Representatives voted to file a lawsuit against the Obama administration, alleging that the executive branch overstepped its authority while implementing ObamaCare. Today, that lawsuit was filed in the federal court in the District of Columbia. Specifically, the House of Representatives points out in their complaint that the Obama administration acted unilaterally to delay the employer mandates in ObamaCare and dispersed payments to insurance companies that were not authorized by Congress.
The defendants are HHS Sec. Sylvia Burwell, the Department of Health and Human Services, Treasury Sec. Jack Lew, and the Department of the Treasury.
