From the office of Congressman Andy Harris:
Congressman Andy Harris, M.D., Applauds House Vote to Authorize Lawsuit Against President Obama;
Calls the legislation a good first step toward restoring the rule of law
Washington, D.C. – Today, the House of Representatives passed legislation to authorize its lawsuit against President Obama for his illegal actions and his blatant disregard for the Constitution and the rule of law. Congressman Harris released the following statement after the House vote:
“I am pleased we passed legislation enabling us to take President Obama to court to stop his unlawful actions. While this lawsuit focuses on how President Obama delayed the legislative mandates in the Affordable Care Act without consulting Congress, this Administration has repeatedly exceeded the authority of the executive branch—from unilaterally freeing five Taliban terrorists to granting amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. No President of either party should ever abuse their power. That’s why this lawsuit is so necessary.”
