(CNN) — House Republicans have filed a lawsuit regarding President Barack Obama’s “unilateral actions” on health care, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced Friday.

“Time after time, the president has chosen to ignore the will of the American people and re-write federal law on his own without a vote of Congress. That’s not the way our system of government was designed to work. If this president can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well. The House has an obligation to stand up for the Constitution, and that is exactly why we are pursuing this course of action,” Boehner said in a statement.
