Olson Applauds Court Ruling Protecting Separation of Powers

May 12, 2016
Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement of support after a federal district judge ruled in House v. Burwell that the Obama administration unlawfully funded parts of Obamacare without an appropriation from Congress:  

“Today’s ruling is a victory for due process, the Constitution and the rule of law. The court rightfully upheld the constitutional parameters that require Congress – not the president – to appropriate taxpayer dollars. The separation of power is a sacred tenant of our governmental process and I applaud Judge Collyer for ruling in defense of it.”
