Text of Amicus Brief by 38 Members of Congress Supporting Challenge to Administration's Enforcement of ACA (PDF)
Judicial Education Project and 38 Members of the United States Congress Link to more items from this source
Apr. 22, 2014
35 pages. Excerpt: "Instead of faithfully implementing and executing the ACA, the Executive Branch has claimed open-ended authority to suspend or modify that law. The result has been a wholesale rewrite of the ACA by executive fiat.... In its initial implementation of the ACA, the Executive Branch eviscerated the grandfathering protection by promulgating regulations eliminating grandfathered status whenever insurance plans make even the most minor adjustments over time (which all of them must inevitably do).... [By] fiat, the Executive has now suspended [the employer mandate and reporting requirements] by twice postponing their effective date. Even worse, the second of the suspension orders purports to modify substantive law as well as effective dates, and to create regulatory categories with no statutory basis whatsoever."
