WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement ahead of tomorrow’s oral arguments on the House’s litigation challenging President Obama’s unilateral actions on ObamaCare:
“Time and again, the president has chosen to rewrite the law whenever it suits him, ignoring the will of the American people and the Constitution itself. Dozens of these unilateral actions involve ObamaCare, and the House is challenging two egregious examples that undermine the separation of powers. Since we began taking this step, courts have continued to rule – as recently as this week – against the president’s executive overreach. The very fact that the administration wants to avoid scrutiny – judicial or otherwise – shows you why this challenge is so important. No one – especially no president – is above accountability to the Constitution and the rule of law.”
NOTE: The House’s challenge addresses two unilateral actions over ObamaCare, including the unlawful waiving of the employer mandate and the illegal transfer of funds to insurance companies. Learn more about the case on Speaker.gov.
