White House criticizes Boehner over Obama lawsuit plan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Wednesday criticized congressional Republicans for considering a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for his use of executive actions this year to move his agenda forward.

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said he planned to file a lawsuit alleging that Obama has abused his executive authority by implementing policies without congressional approval.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters such a move, funded by taxpayers, would not be supported by most Americans.
