US judge denies motion to dismiss Oklahoma lawsuit

(Continued)

OKLAHOMA CITY —

Pruitt’s lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act and alleges portions of the health care law exceed what was authorized by Congress. He has alleged that the IRS rule that’s designed to implement a portion of the health care law gives the government control over state legislative and executive power and infringes on state sovereignty.

“Congress provided a choice for Oklahoma and other states in implementation of the health care law, and the IRS is attempting to take that away by rule,” Pruitt said. “The administration miscalculated how many states would support this law, so now they’re using the IRS to push through provisions that Congress did not pass.”
