US House of Representatives votes to sue Obama

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (C) is joined by fellow Democrats at a news conference in the US Capitol July 30, 2014, after the House voted to sue President Barack ObamaThe Republican-led House of Representatives voted Wednesday to sue President Barack Obama for allegedly overstepping his powers, a move swiftly denounced by his Democratic allies as a cynical election-year stunt. By a party-line vote of 225 to 201, the House voted to resort to the unprecedented move of taking the president to court for not having stringently followed the letter of the law while implementing his signature “Obamacare” health care reform bill. The measure, which would empower House Speaker John Boehner to start the legal proceedings, is meant to rein in a president besotted by power, the top House Republican said from the floor of the chamber. Boehner told his fellow lawmakers that Obama violated the country’s founding document by not adhering rigidly to the wording of the law when implementing the health reform law.
