Sen. Ron Johnson on ObamaCare Lawsuit: 'I Have An Obligation' To 'Re-establish' Checks and Balances

From RollCall.com: Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) filed the suit Monday in federal district court in Green Bay, Wis., against the Office of Personnel Management, seeking to overturn the administrative decision that allows members and staff who transitioned onto the D.C. health care exchange from the federal benefits plan to continue receiving employer contributions. Johnson is dismissing criticism of the legal action, including from a senior Republican from his home state, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI). Johnson called the contention that senior staffers could desert the Capitol complex over increased out-of-pocket health care costs “one of the canards” that opponents use in the debate. — Johnson said that a reason he is bringing the lawsuit is to “uphold the rule of law” and that he hopes the lawsuit will be a “long overdue” check on Presidential powers.
