Monday on the Senate floor, Majority leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said television star Judge Judy would throw out “in half a second” the “sham” lawsuit against President Barack Obama’s excessive use of executive actions to rewrite the Affordable Care Act law.
“Republicans have made a decision on a lawsuit against President Obama. It’s difficult to understand how desperate they have become,” Reid said. “It’s a show trial. If that’s really what Republicans want, they should go talk to Judge Judy. I think she would throw this case out in half a second.”
House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) lawsuit is going after Obama’s most egregious example of using an executive action to rewrite a law. The suit specially targets Obama’s delay of the ObamaCare employer mandate until January 2016. The mandate legally requires employers with more than 50 full-time workers to either offer health insurance or pay a penalty.
