My worst predictions of the year

March 23: Health Care Lawsuits? Good Luck!
The night that health care reform passed the House, I stood under a balcony and listened to Rep. Michele Bachmann promise full repeal by any means necessary. Since then, I’ve taken it seriously when Republicans come up with ways to undo Obamacare. But I was skeptical at first of the lawsuits filed by state attorneys general, aimed at repealing the mandate portion of the bill. “Ambitious Republican politicians are clambering on board with the idea of lawsuits to repeal the health care individual mandate,” I wrote, “even though the chances of repeal are slim.” Ken Cuccinelli was not listening to me.
