Bastards

There can be no simpler example of why the new healthcare "reform" bill has nothing to do with reform whatsoever than this :

...Pelosi’s bill has an anti-tort-reform measure. On pages 1431-1433 of the 1990 spellbinder, there is a financial incentive for states to try “alternative medical liability laws.” But look — you don’t get the incentive if you have a law that would “limit attorneys’ fees or impose caps on damages.” That’s what the trial lawyers get for the millions spent in supporting the Democratic party, and that’s what tort “reform” in the Alice-in-Wonderland world of health-care legislation amounts to. States will be strong-armed into repealing existing caps in order to get the Fed’s money. Sweet, huh? Well, unless you thought the aim was to reduce medical costs. No, this will go a long way toward ensuring that tort lawyers remain rich, malpractice insurance remains high, and unnecessary defensive medicine remains a fixture of the health-care system.
Read it for yourself. As I have said before, Obamacare Delenda Est. These are unscrupulous, dishonorable people bent on controlling every aspect of your lives in order to maintain their power and positions. I am afraid I don't have enough control to add anything short of a very long stream of expletives. Disgusting.
