This is truly priceless. How Sen. Reid (D-Nev.), or any other senator, for that matter, can propose this language with a straight face is perhaps a good indication of how bad the Senate version of Obamacare is.
Beginning at page 1858 in Section 6801, the Senate, no doubt with furrowed brow, plunges into the serious issue of tort reform. Here’s what they say:
(1) Health care reform presents an opportunity to address issues related to medical malpractice and medical liability insurance,
So far, so good, I’m thinking. After all, the entire substance of this 2074 page bill is health care reform. So, I read on.
(2) States should be encouraged [to do something about medical malpractice reform]…
(3) Congress should consider establishing a state demonstration program to evaluate alternatives to [the existing system].
I’m sure the AMA is breathing a lot easier now.
