kingWASHINGTON — Iowa Representative Steve King has spoken out about why he voted in favor of a Republican backed plan to file a lawsuit against President Obama.

The suit alleges that the president exceeded his constitutional authority in the way he enforced the 2010 health care law.

King told Fox News that the suit is about upholding the law.

“First of all, most of us personally like the president. It’s not about mad, it’s not about hate, it is about the Constitution. And the president has just simply decided that he can amend the law that has his name on his signature on it, the law says that the employer mandate shall commence and each month after December of 2013,” Rep. King said.

The vote to sue the president passed in the House 225 to 201 largely along party lines.

    I don’t think the President should have to follow the laws, he already has a lot of work to do making them. He has no time to follow them or enforce them.

    If the gop really thought the lawsuit was valid they would file it asap. But they arent really interested in bringing Obama to court. They know the case is a loser. They just want to play it out as long as they can. Watch and see.
