Inside joke: lawyers around S.E. Michigan always try getting a jury seated inside of Wayne County(Detroit). Blacks(democrats) sitting on a jury always want to hurt the deep pockets of corporations and professionals. They may not have any sort of education and they might all be Trayvons but that's where the outrageous awards come from!<quoted text>
Some liberals think malpractice insurance for physicians doesn't play a major role in the costs of health care.
Depending on the state, OB/GYNs can pay more than $55,000 per year. General surgeons between $22,000 and $34,000 per year.
Juries are easily swayed to award those who file malpractice lawsuits because it's a big company and not hurting anybody.
But if the insurance company has a million customers and jurors give $300,000,000 awards, then everybody's rate goes up by $300 to pay for it.
The health care system is broken but Obamacare is anything but the solution.
A jury in the suburbs is a thinking jury and can't always be counted on to kick out the bucks to just anybody crying crocodile tears.
The system is gamed this way and many others, too....
