GUEST,jts BS: US Health Care Reform (1349* d) RE: BS: US Health Care Reform 11 Sep 09

Malpractice is a Republican talking point, little else. For one thing, tort law is a state issue. It is interesting that the very people who will scream "states rights" in issues where it is convenient to them, issues like same sex marriage and abortion, want to federalize tort law for doctors. On the other hand North Carolina has one of the strictest set of laws against "frivolous law suits" and such in the USA and since those laws have been enacted, medical costs have not decreased substantially. In fact they have risen at the same rate as those states without such laws.

As Republicans continue to insist on such impractical and ill-informed positions I suggest that they be obliged to wear sandwich boards, and in chronic cases, facial tattoos, saying factually challenged.
