House Votes To OK Lawsuit Against Obama
By The Associated Press, with Addtional Reporting from National Public Radio
A sharply divided House has approved a Republican plan to file an election-season federal lawsuit against President Barack Obama.
The suit will contend that Obama has exceeded his constitutional powers in the way he has enforced the 2010 health care law.
The vote was 225 to 201.
Five Republicans voted no, while no Democrats voted in favor of pursuing the lawsuit.
