Rep. Sensenbrenner Criticizes Sen. Johnson Over Obamacare Lawsuit

Republican congressman calls the GOP Wisconsin senator's lawsuit an "unfortunate political stunt"


A veteran House Republican ripped his home-state GOP senator for his "unfortunate political stunt" on ObamaCare.

The unusual intraparty fight was triggered by Sen. Ron Johnson's (R-Wis.) new lawsuit against the Obama administration, which takes aim at the federal contributions that lawmakers and their staffs get for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Johnson unveiled the details of his legal case at a press conference Monday, but Rep. James Sensenbrenner's statement on Sunday stole some of Johnson's thunder.
