Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, strides to the chamber as lawmakers prepare to move on legislation authorizing an election-year lawsuit against President Barack Obama that accuses him of exceeding his powers in enforcing his health care law, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, July 30, 2014. Democrats have branded the effort a political charade aimed at stirring up Republican voters for the fall congressional elections. They say it's also an effort by top Republicans to mollify conservatives who want Obama to be impeached, something Boehner said Tuesday he has no plans to do. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
