Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on a federal judge’s decision in favor of the House Republican-led lawsuit against the Obama Administration on Obamacare spending:

“The Constitution clearly enumerates the spending power to Congress. The Obama Administration ignored this when it illegitimately spent billions of dollars to support Obamacare that Congress never appropriated. While the judge’s decision does not go into effect immediately as the Administration will undoubtedly appeal, today marks a victory for our Constitution against the repeated impulse of executive overreach that has defined this Administration. Congress must continually reassert its authority and defend a proper separation of powers in order to protect the basic liberties of the American people from an Executive branch that continues to exceed its authority.”
