Ted Cruz may no longer be the solicitor general of Texas, but the Republican senator has penned a legal memo about the White House’s “lawless acts on Obamacare.”

The Daily Caller was provided an early look at the memo, set for release Monday. This is the second time Cruz has released a report for his “The Legal Limit: The Obama Administration’s Attempts to Expand Federal Power” series.

Monday’s report focuses on the Obama administration’s implementation of the healthcare law and why Cruz believes the law is unconstitutional.

“There is no clearer example of the Obama Administration’s abusive view of federal power than its implementation of Obamacare,” Cruz wrote.

“Congress should repeal Obamacare in its entirety,” Cruz wrote. “Until it is able to do so, however, courts should vindicate various pending lawsuits challenging Obamacare under provisions such as the Constitution’s Origination Clause, the Free Exercise Clause, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the text of Obamacare itself. And more court challenges should be filed to stop the Obama Administration’s lawless implementation of Obamacare.”
