National Edition News cover for November 22, 2014 - John Boehner files long-awaited lawsuit over Obamacare: House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio responds to President Barack Obama's intention to spare millions of illegal immigrants from being deported, a use of executive powers that is setting up a fight with Republicans in Congress over the limits of presidential powers, Friday, Nov. 21, 2014, during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. Boehner, who has refused to have his members vote on broad immigration legislation passed by the Senate last year, said earlier that Obama's decision to go it alone "cemented his legacy of lawlessness and squandered what little credibility he had left."
