r. Larry Kawa, an orthodontist from Boca Raton, Florida, is suing President Obama for changing the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate without congressional approval. His case challenging the 29 executive orders that altered Obamacare is the only such case out there. It will be heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Atlanta.
Kawa spent $5,000 in legal fees last year to ensure that his business was in compliance with the law’s requirement that employers with 50 or more employees provide insurance to those employees after December 31, 2013. Obama then pushed the deadline back by two years, a move which Kawa claims was politically motivated and, more importantly, illegal.
