U.S. President Barack Obama mocked Republican lawmakers' plan to file a lawsuit against him for using his executive authority to make policy, saying Congress had forced his hand by failing to take action. "The suit is a stunt," Obama said in an interview with ABC News that aired on Friday. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Wednesday he planned take legal action alleging the president has abused his executive authority by implementing policies without congressional approval. "I'm not going to apologize for trying to do something while they're doing nothing," Obama said.
