Judge to mull senator's suit over health exchanges

FILE - In this Jan. 6, 2014 file photo, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., joined by attorneys Paul D. Clement, far left, and Rick Esenberg, second from left, announces that he has filed a lawsuit to block the federal government from helping to pay for health care coverage for members of Congress and their staffs during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. A federal judge will hear arguments this week on whether to toss a U.S. senator’s lawsuit challenging rules that force congressional members and their staffs to obtain government-subsidized health insurance through small business exchanges. Johnson contends that senators, representatives and their employees aren’t eligible for the exchanges under the federal health care law because they work for a government that employs millions. He also argues that premium subsidies that congressional members and staffers receive will foster resentment among his constituents. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal judge will hear arguments this week on whether to toss a U.S. senator’s lawsuit challenging rules that force congressional members and their staffs to obtain government-subsidized health insurance through small business exchanges.
