WASHINGTON (CN) – House Republicans will pay BakerHostetler up to $350,000 in public money, plus expenses, to sue President Obama, according to a contract approved Monday.
BakerHostetler will get $500 an hour, according to the contract signed by BakerHostetler partner David Rivkin Jr., House of Representatives Counsel Kerry Kircher, and Committee on House Administration Chairwoman Candice Miller, R-Michigan.
The contract expires on Jan. 5, 2015, or when the presumed lawsuit reaches final judgment, “whichever comes first.”
Republicans claim to be suing Obama for failing to implement a section of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which Republicans have tried to repeal 50 times.
