Speaker Boehner gets Congress approval to sue President Obama

For the first time in American history, a chamber of Congress has authorized its leader to sue the President of the United States.

In a 225-201 vote, the House of Representatives backed Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in his decision to file a lawsuit against President Obama over his handling of the Affordable Care Act. Boehner and other Republicans allege that Obama has flouted his constitutional authority by unilaterally extending deadlines in the law, particularly those related to the employer mandate penalties.
