Trial Lawyers' Bonanza in ObamaCare? Not Yet

Just because it's gone now doesn't mean it won't re-surface.

...Republicans yesterday managed to block a remarkable provision that had been slipped into the House leadership’s 794-page health care bill just before it went to a House Ways & Means markup session. If their description of the provision is accurate — and my initial reading of the language gives me no reason to think it isn’t — it sounds as if they managed to (for the moment) hold off one of the more audacious and far-reaching trial lawyer power grabs seen on Capitol Hill in a while.

Read the post at the link--it's not easily reducible--but the Greed Lobby almost scored with this one.

And it WILL be back, folks.
