The D.C. Circuit has affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by medical doctors challenging the constitutionality of the implementation of Obamacare.
In Association of American Physicians and Surgeons v. Sebelius, one of the arguments asserted by the plaintiffs was that Congress violated the Origination Clause of the U.S. Constitution when it enacted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
The case had been dismissed by the D.C. District Court for lack of standing and failure to state a claim by the association. The doctors appealed that dismissal, but were unsuccessful.
