I am suing the government because of the fact that the president changed an existing law apart from the will of Congress. I filed the federal lawsuit under two basic categories: 1. I'm a local business owner and it's cost me a lot of time, money, effort and resources; and 2. I filed as an American citizen because I feel that it was wrong to do that in light of the fact that the Constitution specifically disallows it.
