Boehner Sues Obama $12 BILLION For Altering ObamaCare And His "So, Sue Me." Attitude... Guess Who Will Be Stuck Paying For It...
Washington, DC - The question of how much money Speaker John Boehner is suing President Barack Obama for has finally been answered. The answer is... twelve billion dollars! Yes, that's BILLION, with a 'B'!
Speaking at a press conference today in Washington, Boehner announced the dollar amount of the controversial lawsuit.
"The president overstepped his legal authority when he altered the Affordable Care Act and someone needs to pay for this. Obama's 'So sue me' attitude needs to stop. The American people need to see justice."
In a 225-201 vote on Wednesday, the House approved the decision to move forward with the suit. House lawmakers claim Obama violated Bohner's legal authority, setting up a potential constitutional test and giving both parties a major campaign issue to take home for the next five-week congressional recess.
Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told CNN she does not approve of the lawsuit.
"Where is the money that Speaker Bohner is suing Obama for is anyone's guess," Clinton said.
"A ridiculous lawsuit like this is a wasteful and inappropriate use of taxpayer dollars for political purposes. Something must be done to stop this from happening."
To give you an idea how much money Boner is suing for; with $12 billion you could purchase 200 luxurious Gulfstream G550s. You could afford 800 million tanning visits. You could buy 200 million bottles of decent whiskey.
A Mormon girl who recently auctioned off her virginity to help her church with repairs sold for almost $1.2 million. That means you could buy the virginity of 10,000 Mormon girls!
"Our legal team is holding Speaker Boner accountable. We have filed a formal complaint with Congress and are planning protests outside of Republicans' district offices and other tactics.
Together, we can help expose the lawsuit for the cynical political ploy that it is and generate press coverage that holds Republicans accountable as the November elections loom."
