The Legal Challenge to Health Care Legislation

Politico's The Arena asks:

State AG's lawsuit against health care: Do they have a case?

Dean Baker responds:

What happened to the Republicans' opposition to frivolous lawsuits?

From what I've read, there are two points to make. First, it would be crazy to rule that the individual mandate (or any other component of the legislation) is unconstitutional. Second, we have four crazy justices on the Supreme Court.
