Friday, July 29, 2005A special interest medical malpractice bill approved by House
This is what I'm talking about, every time the Republicans are in office, they only care about the rich, and the rest of us are screwed.
Excerpt from John Conyers:
Today the Republicans passed an outrageously bad medical malpractice bill.
The bill supersedes the law in all 50 states to cap non-economic damages, cap and limit punitive damages, cap attorney’s fees for poor victims, shorten the statute of limitations, eliminate joint and several liability, and eliminate collateral source. It not only applies to doctors, but also drug companies and HMO’s.
The bill totally ignores the real problem – price gouging by the insurance industry. This despite the fact that a recent study showed that over the last five years, medical malpractice claims were flat, while premiums charged to doctors increased by more than 100%.
