Boehner's new suit a tight fit

Washington (CNN) – Sounds like Speaker John Boehner's new suit will be a pretty tight fit.

For weeks, Boehner has been threatening to slap President Barack Obama with a lawsuit over his broad use of executive authority.

But Republicans have been playing the details close to the vest.

Now, finally, some of the specifics have come to light, and despite executive orders on everything from immigration, to the minimum wage for federal workers, to the environment, for Boehner it all comes down to Obamacare.

That is one sharp-dressed issue that never goes out of style, for the Republican base, that is.

CNN Dana Bash reports.
