now this is to the point. there is no way we can afford any reform by congress.....our grandchildren will be dealing with the mess they have made....in fact we need to convince them to un do some of the damage they have done....they are supposed to be working for us not against us.

63% of congress are attorneys, and they want to do what? You don’ have to be a genius, to figure out that the trial attorneys get favorable decisions via Congress. TOO MANY ATTORNEYS IN CONGRESS!

The author is either a nut or a liar.

Read the article. Do the math. Yeah, lawyers bring home “billions.” About $2 billion (40% $4.5 billion). Assume 1/4 of that is “frivolous” which is way beyond all estimates.

Greedy lawyers would net $500 million in 2008. United Health Care CEO alone made $200 million in 2008. Greedy doctors/health care providers cost medicare alone about $60 billion.

Oh yeah, and before any of you guys do the “defensive medicine” costs thing, please go to the “gawande” link inside the link above. Read what Dr.Gawande had to say about defensive medicine.

parsy, who will keep trying to drive stakes in the tort reform myth.
