Lawsuit challenging Obamacare thrown out by federal judge in WisconsinSubmitted: 07/22/2014
Story By Associated Press

GREEN BAY - A federal judge in Green Bay throws out a lawsuit challenging Obamacare.

U. S. Senator Ron Johnson filed the lawsuit in January.

The Wisconsin republican argued members of congress received special treatment under the affordable care act -- in the form of subsidies.

Johnson claimed those regulations forced him to participate in something he believed was illegal.

A federal judge disagreed on Monday.

Federal Judge William Griesbach ruled Johnson didn't have the legal standing to sue.

That's because Johnson couldn't prove he was being harmed.

The judge said the regulation hasn't been determined to be legal or illegal, so the lawsuit "puts the cart before the horse."
