Georgia Congressman leads Anti-Obamacare Fight

Healthcare Costs

WASHINGTON — A federal DC-based judge just delivered a major blow to the Obama administration by authorizing an anti-Obamacare lawsuit, led by House Republicans, to move forward in the legal process.

The House GOP claimed in their suit that the President and his administration spent money for health insurers without seeking proper congressional approval. In a 43-page decision, Federal District Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled that the lawsuit had constitutional standing.

“Article I [of the Constitution] is very clear,” said Judge Collier in her decision. “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law…”

Georgia Congressman Tom Price has been out-front with proposals against Obamacare. On Wednesday, he issued the following statement:

“This is an historic decision that will hold the President and his administration to account. The fact of the matter is that Congress has never appropriated funds that are being used to pay for major components of the President’s health care law. In typical fashion, the Obama Administration has operated by executive fiat, avoiding the legislative process and with it, ignoring the voices of the American people. This law remains unworkable. We are committed to repealing it and starting over. When that time comes, there are positive, patient-centered health care solutions, like HR 2300, ready for action.”
