Republican Senator Ron Johnson To Sue In Order To End The Obamacare Exemption For Congress And Its Staff

A lot of Republicans in D.C. may not have the cahones to fight, but Ron Johnson isn’t one of them. He’s suing to force members of Congress and their staff to abide by the law and take Obamacare without subsidies.

Sen. Ron Johnson tells Newsmax he is prepared to sue the “lawless” Obama administration over its decision to grant members of Congress and their staff special treatment under Obamacare.

…”I’m highly concerned,” Johnson tells Newsmax. “Across the board, in so many instances, this is pretty much a lawless administration, [considering] the unconstitutional recess appointments he made to the National Labor Relations Board and to the Consumer Financial Bureau.

“This president seems to have no restraint in terms of the Constitution or laws that even he enacts. So I’m highly concerned about that. It’s one of the reasons that I really do intend to pursue a lawsuit to overturn another unlawful ruling that grants members of Congress and their staff special treatment under Obamacare.

“The president had no legal authority to initiate that ruling. I’m hoping that a senator, like myself, as well as members of my staff have the legal standing to go to court to overturn that, let’s face it, lawless ruling.”

This is exactly what Republicans should be saying and doing right now. Let’s make the Democrats’ exemption from Obamacare, which they voted for unanimously thanks to Ted Cruz and Mike Lee’s defund push, a central issue in the 2014 election. Let them live under the same laws they’re forcing on the rest of the country and then we’ll see how excited they are about Obamacare.
