U.S. Sen. Johnson says he'll appeal lawsuit ruling

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) – U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) says he will file an appeal in his Obamacare lawsuit, which was dismissed by a federal judge in July; the lawsuit challenges a rule that allows congressional employees to receive subsidies for health care under the Affordable Care Act.

Johnson’s case was dismissed on July 14 by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin. According to an opinion piece published Sunday in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Johnson says that to honor his oath of office, he feels “compelled to exhaust every legal recourse.”
