House Republicans voted Wednesday evening to move forward with their lawsuit against President Obama.
The resolution, which passed 225-201, authorizes a lawsuit against the president over the administration’s decision to delay the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act.
3. Democrats voted unanimously against the measure. Five Republicans voted no: Reps. Thomas Massie, Walter Jones Jr., Paul Broun, Steve Stockman, and Scott Garrett.
The idea of impeaching Obama, rather than suing him, has been floated by a few Republicans, and ruled out by Boehner and Rep. Paul Ryan.
5. The White House has slammed the lawsuit in recent weeks, including comments from the president today:
- Hillary Clinton's campaign is making an unprecedented play for Utah, a state that hasn't gone blue since 1964 🔵
- In case you were wondering, no — a big cyber attack couldn't swing the election.
- Kesha fans rejoice: Sony just confirmed that a new album is in the works 🎵
- People are trolling Eric Trump for apparently getting caught putting lemonade in a free water cup at In-N-Out.
