PLF's Origination Clause challenge to Obamacare still going forward

March 12, 2014 | By TIMOTHY SANDEFUR

A few people have written to ask about the recent D.C. Circuit Court decision affirming the dismissal of a challenge to Obamacare that’s based on the Origination Clause. That case was not our lawsuit, but a different one. And although the D.C. Circuit affirmed that dismissal, it did so in part for procedural reasons that don’t apply to our case. We’re still waiting for a hearing date in our case Of course, for the reasons Prof. Barnett articulates here, we believe our case has much merit, and we look forward to having our day in court. You can learn more about our case, Sissel v. Dep’t. of HHS, here.
