'No There There' in Obama Malpractice Promise

Just amazing, Gomer.

“While we are encouraged that the Obama Administration has made medical liability reform part of their overall health care package, the $25 million state grant program announced today amounts to about 1-40,000th of one percent of the cost of a one trillion dollar health care bill.

“Studies have shown that meaningful medical malpractice reform can save from $120 billion to as much as $500 billion over a decade. But a small medical liability grant program will not be effective, and will preserve the status quo when it comes to medical malpractice lawsuits.”

--US Chamber of Commerce

Cynics. Obama will Save the Nation, don'cha know.

I've never understood my side's aversion to malpractice reform. Seems like a no-brainer to me. Especially if we could use it as a bargaining chip to get some R support. Same with buying insurance across state lines.

You and I could probably agree on a LOT more than our "sides" could.

Which brings up another point: I ain't no (R)....I'm a conservative.

BIG difference.

"Buying insurance"_--by the way, ever think of designing a policy that does NOT offer abortion, artificial birth-control, or chemical sex-stimulant coverage? Saves money.

There's a market for those, but the (D) plan-design won't consider that.
