Interesting that the LATimes put this out there. The fact that Obama is a slick attorney who knows precisely how to get off on a technicality, as he screws over America. It is almost as if they are bragging.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Surely Congress should have automatic standing in Executive Order cases?

Why?   The Congress clearly had standing in the case of recess appointments, because those were an abrogation of Congressional power by the Executive.

Otherwise, how is Congress harmed by, in the case of Obmacare, the Executive NOT doing something?

If I owned a business with less than 50 employees I could argue that I am harmed by OPapaDoc's actions because my bigger competitors were given a cost savings that I had not anticipated in capitalizing my own business over the coming year.
