Following the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia’s ruling in United States House Representatives v. Burwell, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“No administration can spend money that is not explicitly appropriated by the legislative branch. The Constitution is explicitly clear on this. The Obama administration, of course, has developed a lawless and shameful proclivity for going around Congress to implement its agenda, with no regard for the constitutional separation of powers. We’re pleased with this ruling, and we hope that it will stand as this case works its way through federal courts.”
