Obama Lawyers Tell Judge to Toss GOP’s Health Care Lawsuit

The administration asked the federal court late Monday to dismiss the House lawsuit against President Obama, saying he is faithfully carrying out his health law and the GOP lawmakers who filed the legal challenge have no right to sue.

“The Supreme Court has made clear that federal courts do not sit to referee this sort of institutional dispute,” the administration said in its legal brief asking the federal court in Washington, D.C., to reject the House lawsuit.

The House voted last year to sue Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell for how Obamacare is being carried out, saying that by unilaterally delaying parts of the law, such as the employer mandate, she is rewriting the law — a power reserved to Congress.
