US House Filing Lawsuit Against President Obama

Posted: Updated:

Speaker of the House John Boehner says he's suing President Obama.

The lawsuit would be filed on behalf of the GOP-controlled House, and would accuse the president of failing to carry out laws passed by Congress.

Boehner did not reveal specific claims, but Republicans have been upset about the president's actions on issues including gun control, climate change, minimum wage, gay marriage, health care and immigration.

The Speaker said the Constitution makes it clear the president's job is to faithfully execute the law and that he is exceeding his authority.
