Barrow Votes Against Suit
Friday, 01 August 2014

August 1-- U.S. Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) voted against legislation in the House of Representatives authorizing Speaker John Boehner to file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for failing to implement provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Congressman Barrow released the following statement:

“I think this lawsuit is a waste of time and money,” said Congressman Barrow.  “I'm not shy about taking on this administration when it can do some good, but delaying these health care mandates is better than going forward with them.  In fact, I'm trying to get rid of them altogether.  The last thing we ought to be doing is suing to have them enforced.  Surely, there are more productive things Congress should be doing in its final days than spending time and money grandstanding to enforce a bad policy.”
