Greg Walden: Abuse of Executive Power


Good news in the fight against abuse of executive power and Obamacare: a federal court has ruled in favor of the U.S. House of Representatives in a lawsuit against the Administration’s unconstitutional use of taxpayer dollars to subsidize health insurers.

The Obama administration has repeatedly abused executive power and flouted basic Constitutional principles. In November 2014, the House responded by passaging a resolution I strongly supported that empowered Speaker of the House John Boehner to file a lawsuit in making the case that the administration spent taxpayer money that Congress never authorized or appropriated for such purpose. Last week, a federal court agreed with our case and followed the plain meaning of the Constitution and upheld the rule of law.

While the Administration plans to appeal the ruling, know that I will continue to fight to protect our Constitutional rights and to rein in wasteful spending at every opportunity.  This decision sends a clear message that the executive branch must follow the Constitution and respect the role of Congress

It is an honor to represent you in the U.S. Congress.


Best regards,

Greg Walden

U.S. Representative

Oregon’s Second District
