EDITOR: I support U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson's decision to file a lawsuit against President Obama. The president's job is to uphold the law, period. This president has a five-year history of ignoring laws he doesn't agree with while changing other laws by means of waivers, subsidies, delays and exemptions. Johnson, along with others, question his authority to do this, so what's wrong with some legal clarification?
The important thing is to maintain the balance of power, regardless of who is in the White House.
