Washington (CNN) -- House Speaker John Boehner said Friday he has sued the Obama Administration in federal court over its decisions to make changes to the President's health care law, which congressional Republicans argue were unconstitutional.

The move was expected for months -- the GOP-controlled House of Representatives voted to approve the lawsuit in July. But Boehner had trouble retaining a law firm that would take the case because of the political furor over the controversial health care law.

"Time after time, the President has chosen to ignore the will of the American people and re-write federal law on his own without a vote of Congress. That's not the way our system of government was designed to work," Boehner said in statement on Friday.

He added, "if this President can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well. The House has an obligation to stand up for the Constitution, and that is exactly why we are pursuing this course of action."

I always giggle when Boehner speaks of the President ignoring the will of the American people. Boehner of all people who has ignored the will of the American people for the last 4 years. His House Republicans never got as much support as the President and his agenda did. Not in 2010, not in 2012 and not this year. And what has Boehner done to honor the expressed will of the American people who have - with far more votes than his Republicans could ever dream of - put Obama into the Oval Office? He's ignored it and obstructed and blocked the progress that people voted for in large numbers. That's what. So when Boehner speaks of the will of the people, I can't help but giggle.
