Wisconsin's senior senator takes the feds to court

Green Bay, WI (WTAQ) - A federal judge in Green Bay will hear arguments today in a lawsuit from U-S Senator Ron Johnson on Obama-care benefits for his colleagues and staffers.

The Wisconsin Republican said the administration overstepped its authority, by granting federal tax subsidies for congressional personnel to use the Obama-care purchasing exchanges regardless of their incomes. 

Federal Judge William Griesbach is presiding over today's hearing, in which the government will seek a motion to drop the lawsuit while claiming that Johnson had no legal right to file it.

Johnson insists he has legal standing to sue, because he's being harmed by having to take part in program he believes is illegal.
