13 state attorneys general (three of whom are running for governor) filed lawsuits against a provision of health care reform that will not actually go into effect until 2014. Tort reform now!
These lawsuits are not expected to accomplish anything, which might lead some to call them "frivolous."
Here are two funny paragraphs, from the AP:
[Florida Attorney General Bill] McCollum was working with officials from several state agencies to determine how much the health care overhaul would cost the state. He said earlier this month, "I can't conceive of any good in this bill and I don't think any of these agencies can."
Under the bill, starting in six months, health insurance companies would be required to keep young adults as beneficiaries on their parents' plans until they turn 26, and companies would no longer be allowed to deny coverage to sick children.
Yes, why is Florida gubernatorial candidate Bill McCollum objectively pro-sick children dying? This ambulance-chasing trial lawyer hates America.
