The dangers of decompartmentalized health spending: “The elderly consume 70% of all health care spending. That means that when it comes to cost control, they will bear the brunt of the burden.
WRONG. There's a way to reduce costs without hurting our seniors or our doctors:
Tort reform would reduce "defensive testing" and lower malpractice insurance fees and so reduce costs without reducing care.
IOW: Lawyers can bear the brunt of the cost of reform, not seniors.
Why isn't this in the bill?
SIMPLE: The Democrat Party is in the tank for trial lawyers - like John Edwards.
TORT REFORM WOULDN'T COST TAXPAYERS A PENNY - IT WOULD SAVE BILLIONS - AND A BILL COULD BE WRITTEN IN UNDER 10 PAGES.
THE GOP FAVORS TORT REFORM.
WANT A CHANGE FOR THE BETTER? THEN, VOTE GOP IN 2010.
