In order to file a lawsuit you must be able to prove damage to your self, or standing. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) filed a lawsuit against Obamacare last year.

Yes, we now live in the world of Beulah Balbricker.
Last week's Hobby Lobby ruling by the Supreme Court has opened the floodgates of companies claiming "religious freedom" for violating the law. The latest, companies not wanting to hire LGBT employees. It's starting to make Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dissent appear more like a peek into the future.
The house spent $5.6 million investigating Benghazi last year. In the same time, they spent $3 million on the Veterans' Affairs committee.
