WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, the ranking member of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, today released a report on the Obama Administration's unilateral rewriting of parts of the Affordable Care Act, and the law's multiple statutory and constitutional infirmities, currently under review by the courts.

"President Obama has made explicit that if the Congress won't agree to his preferred policies, then the President will simply rewrite the law through an abuse of executive power," Cruz said. "For over two centuries, we have been a nation of laws, not men, and Republicans and Democrats should both be united against any President who refuses to follow the law. This arrogation of power to the Executive undermines the rule of law, and poses a grave threat to our Constitution and to the liberty of every American."

This is the second report in Sen. Cruz's "Legal Limit" series on the Obama Administration's ongoing efforts to expand executive power. The first report highlighted the administration's extraordinary recent record of 9-0 defeats in the Supreme Court in cases where it argued for expanded federal power.
