    yeah, shocking. It was simply a way to reward the insurance companies and avoid reforming the health care industry.

    Bingo- tort reform is simply a way of telling the poor they have to suck it up if a surgeon ruins their lives. No big surprise here. Thanks Neocons!

    Yet that is the very first thing on the list of most conservatives when you ask them what is wrong with the health care industry in this country.

    Somehow my premiums are rising 10% a year and it's all because of frivolous lawsuits?

    Anyone who knows anything about the system knows that it had nothing to do with lawsuits. But think about who wrote the bill. Typical. Take a real problem, flat out lie to people about the cause, "fix" this fake cause, blame someone else when the problem doesn't get fixed, and then stop talking about it. Meanwhile, the insurance companies and pharmacies continue to drive up costs AND reap the benefits of such laws. Win-win for them.
