Thought of the Day #198 - Health Care Reform Part 2

Step 2 - eliminate frivilous malpractice claims & lower or eliminate
malpractice insurance for physicians and other medical care
professionals. Doctors are people. People make mistakes. Malpractice
claims for anything aside from true negligence and willful endangerment
should be thrown out of court. Also, awards for accidental death or
physical damage should be limited and standardized. What price life? Not
mine to decide, but I know that 5 million dollars sounds excessive no
matter who you are.
