we are being told that we need this reform bill because expenses are too high. Congress, a bunch of lawyers, would have a huge say in how much docs can charge for things, that's a good portion of how insurance works. Yet, they don't want to cap their own industry's profits! How dare they stick their fingers into other businesses without cleaning out their own closets first! Will you allow this in the name of obamacare? Are you so desperate for a bill of antkind that you will accept this sloppy mess? Or will you hold them accountable?

There has always been talk on capping the amount of malpractice pay outs. I once heard the maximum was to be $250,000. I don't know any self-respecting lawyer who will work for that. If they took it on contingency, they would only earn about $100,00 if they charged 40% of the award. Tort reform? no, no, no, no......
