A federal judge ruled today in favor of the Constitution by reminding President Obama that he does not have the power or ability to spend money. House Republicans filed a lawsuit after President Obama illegally issued billions of dollars to insurance companies participating in ObamaCare.

“As usual, President Obama overstepped his authority and sidestepped the Constitution,” Congressman Farenthold said. “While it shouldn’t take a federal court judge to remind the President of the different roles of Congress and the Executive Office, I’m glad to see this decision.”
