Is this a “We told ya so” moment? We won’t be able to repeal ObamaCare until 2016, but by then the ammo for repeal will be great.

Last week, the state of California claimed that its version of Obamacare’s health insurance exchange would actually reduce premiums. “These rates are way below the worst-case gloom-and-doom scenarios we have heard,” boasted Peter Lee, executive director of the California exchange.
