GOP Sues Obama Administration Over ACA
The Republicans have taken to the courts. They’re suing the secretaries of the Health and Human Services and Treasury Departments, respectively, over two Obamacare issues they claim are “abuses” of presidential authority. Republicans allege the White House illegally delayed the requirement that larger firms supply health coverage to all full-time employees. And they aren’t happy with subsidies guaranteed to insurance companies, some $175 billion worth. It’s too soon to tell how much legal standing they’ll have, but at least two attorneys dropped out of the case before the news broke.
