I'm sure there will be many more posts under this heading as more and more of the legislation is read and disseminated, but this first one is quite a doozy.
One of the major reforms to health care the American public has demanded is tort reform. It would save billions if enacted - $54 billion, to be exact.
So, is tort reform one of the ways they are allegedly bringing down costs?
Eh, not so much.
Turns out San Fran Nan has shown her love for trial lawyers. Not only is there no provision for tort reform, but the woman has the gall to actually make sure states can not reduce fees or cap damages without being penalized. So any hope the states may have had for controlling costs is just blown out the window.
Happy lawyers make better donors, eh Nancy?
