Another lie that the right wing likes to trot out.
One of the principal myths surrounding medical malpractice is its effect on overall health care costs. Medical malpractice is actually a tiny percentage of health care costs, in part because medical malpractice claims are far less frequent than many people believe.
In 2004, the CBO calculated malpractice costs amounted to “less than 2 percent of overall health care spending. Thus, even a reduction of 25 percent to 30 percent in malpractice costs would lower health care costs by only about 0.4 percent to 0.5 percent, and the likely effect on health insurance premiums would be comparably small.” i
Five years later, the CBO revisited the issue of medical negligence costs. This time, they attempted to account for the indirect costs of medical negligence, mainly the idea that doctors order extra tests to avoid liability. Again, the CBO found that tort reform would only save 0.5 percent of all health care costs.
Other authorities have also found that the direct costs associated with medical negligence are a tiny fraction of health care costs. According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the total amount of money spent defending claims and compensating victims of medical negligence in 2010 was $5.8 billion, or just 0.3 percent of the $2.6 trillion spent on health care in the U.S. that same year.

Define "calculated malpractice costs". Otherwise, STFU.

It takes about the same time as from now to when you will be at Happy Hour, if they allow you in and you're still only moderately inebriated, as usual.

Most of us are not religious Dumb Dave, on the other hand, you are the same as a bible thumper or worse when it comes to extremism and lack of tolerance. The reason in your case, is you're just a plain old idiot. Like you have room to talk?

Chelsea Clinton's new $10million pad is New York's longest apartment - stretching an entire block from 26th Street to 27th Street off Madison Avenue.
Described as 'a luxury fortress' with one full-time doorman to the horizontal building's four units, it takes almost 30 seconds to walk the 250-foot hallway, according to New York Daily News.
The former First Daughter, 33, bought the four-bedroom, 5,000-square-foot apartment with her husband Marc Mezvinsky, 35, after putting their nearby $4million pad on the market earlier this year

I WONDER HOW MANY HOMELESS PEOPLE THESE GREAT CARING POOR DEMOCRATS ARE HOUSING URBAN PLANTATION DWELLERS SMH and THEY TALK ABOUT REPUBLICANS and the hate for the RICH BY URBAN DEMOCRATS A WHOLE CITY BLOCK WHILE PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING IN THE STREETS HYPOCRITES URBAN DEMOCRATS WHY DONT YOU CALL THESE PEOPLE OUT THE URBAN DEMOCRATS WALKED RIGHT BACK TO THE PLANTATION WITH NO SHAME AND THEY THINK THEY SHOULD BE RESPECTED LOW LIFES

It costs money. Really. No sh*t.

Money. You know, that thing poor people don't have.

You & your buddy the Pope can keep whining about birth control without copay as part of health insurance & then whine about the number of poor people & the number of abortions.

I'm not the one making birth control harder to get. That makes me very tolerant of others.

I'm not the one against better access to birth control while b*tching about poor people having babies & people getting abortions.

Do you people realize those two things work against each other?

That better access to birth control means fewer abortions & fewer babies?

Are you really that stupid?

More naive talk from the gullible Egyptian!
F-16's can be seen on radar. Invasion of a sovereign country's airspace is an act of war. But Drones can easily fly unseen beneath radar unheard. They fly in, kill, and fly back out untouched.
It is a whole new method of warfare never seen before. It IS different, Little Boy.
The jury is still out on whether or not Drone attacks should be considered an act of war or simply a surgical 'event'. Part of the missing complaints can be attributed to the fact that all countries are now investing in drone technology. They don't want to rock the boat.
Wake up, kid. Better yet: grow up.
F-16? ROFLMAO

Are you saying that the pusher prop PQ-9 Reaper can't be seen on radar??? Are you saying that the terrorists who inhabit Pakistan's Peshawar province have radar?? Are you saying that the Pakistan Government gives a fk if the US levels every crazy azz terrorist settlement along the Afghan border so long as we keep sending those gigantic checks.

Clueless__maybe you should take your sht back to the topix game threads.

THE URBAN PLANTATION DWELLER MAKES EXCUSES FOR THESE REPORTS BECAUSE HE ISN'T THE 44th HE IS THE FIRST but FIRST WHAT he is half WHITE SO HE SHOUL:DN't BE CONSIDIRED BLACK,HIS POLICIES SUPPORT THE WEALTHY NOT THE POOR OR NEEDY How the rich got RICHER during the economic recovery - while the other 93 percent became worse offAverage net worth of households in the upper 7 percent rose by an estimated 28 percent
Households in the lower 93 percent dropped by 4 percent
Reason found: Affluent households typically own stocks and other financial holdings that increased in value
Less wealthy tend to have more of their assets in their homes which haven't rebounded in value
