House to Sue Obama Over Health-Care Law’s Mandate Waiver

The U.S. House of Representatives will sue President Barack Obama’s administration over delaying the implementation of an employer health insurance mandate in the 2010 health-care law.

“In 2013, the president changed the health-care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law by literally waiving the employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement yesterday. “That’s not the way our system of government was designed to work.”
