Perhaps the most offensive aspect of the speech and this swollen, monstrous big government gryphon that has been dragged out is the fake malpractice reform. This is an insult to the health care injury, which will be the first of many industries to be destroyed by the health care scheme. Olympia Snowe has at last come to her senses and spit out the Kool-aid; we must now go back into the streets and fight this one, too, even if ACORN and Moveon mobs try to bite our fingers off.

Lets see what is going on with the DNC and its last breath of life. Obama and the DC hood gang are losing the far left of which they are members.

The have lost the elderly as they want to kill them.

The DNC is losing the baby boomers as they wake up see they are next and being the largest segment of the population Obama and the DNC want to kill them.

The have lost the independents.

They have lost the Jewish community deciding the Muslim terrorists are more important than Israel.

They are losing the main good democrats that love the USA surrendering and telling the world Obama and the DNC will talk and hug terrorists and allowed the many who have fought and died for our freedom to be for not.

They have lost the good dem’s with supporting groups like ACORN selling little girls in to the sex trade.

They are losing black conservatives using the race card to divide and conquer.

They have even lost McCain and Snow the two Republicans that bend of the aisle for the left to make fools of them.

They have lost the blue dogs and all sides of the DNC are coming apart like humpy de-dumpty that fell off of the wall. Only the pieces can not be put back together.

And if they leave out the illegal’s they lose possible voters. If they impact tort on ambulance chasers they lose the BAR.

The left’s diagnose is grave and will not recover and as with Obama care to costly to try and save so give it a pain pill and let them all die a quiet death with ACORN, Move on, Apollo, Tides, and the drive by media as well as the rest of the WACKO left.

Now this is change we can all count on starting now not in 2010. Impeach them all and send the left to gitmo or Iran.

What more can we expect of the "Party of No"? If Obama tried to appoint Jesus as an advisor he'd be smeared as a limp-wristed communist radical by the right-wing fringe drones.

The voters are quickly realizing the truth about Obama. He's an empty-suit, smooth-talking Chicago gas bag. So much for "Change we can believe in." Nobody believes him about anything anymore. I have never seen one of our major political parties collapse so quickly and thoroughly in my lifetime.

"frivolous" lawsuits are not out of control. What is out of control is the amount of mistakes that are made by doctors and nurses who are forced to work too many hours. They then make stupid mistakes. The sad thing is there does seem to be a "white wall" when a doctor makes a mistake, no other doctor will speak out even though they know it was a mistake.

TEXAS IS PROOF: "The Turnaround in Medical Liability"

"Perhaps the most visible economic impact of lawsuit reforms are the benefits experienced by Texans who have better access to high-quality healthcare. Doctors and hospitals are using their liability insurance savings to expand services and initiate innovative programs; those savings have allowed Texas hospitals to expand charity care by 24%.

This dramatic reversal would have been hard to imagine just a few years ago. Between 1999 and 2003, medical insurance premiums for many Texas doctors doubled, due to abusive litigation and excessive jury awards. As a result, Texas went from 50 insurance carriers in the late 1990s to only four in 2003. Orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, obstetricians, and other high-risk specialists were leaving the state adding to the already critical shortage of doctors and nurses in rural areas, the border region, and many other parts of Texas.

In 2001, according to the American Medical Association, Texas ranking in physicians per capita was a dismal 48th out of 50.

The 2003 medical liability reforms set in motion a domino effect of immediate, positive developments across the state.

First, in August 2004, the Texas Hospital Association reported a 70% reduction in the number of lawsuits filed against the states hospitals.

Second, medical liability insurance rates declined. Many doctors saw average rate actions of over 21%, with some doctors seeing almost 50% decreases.(Recent information provided to The Perryman Group during the course of this study suggests that premiums are declining even further in 2008.)

Third, beginning in 2003, physicians started returning to Texas. The Texas Medical Board reports licensing 10,878 new physicians since 2003, up from 8,391 in the prior four years. Dr. Perryman, subsequent to the issuance of his Report, informed TLR Foundation that at least 1,887 of those physicians are specifically the result of lawsuit reform.

Finally, in May 2006, the American Medical Association removed Texas from its list of states experiencing a liability crisis, marking the first time it has removed any state from the list. A recent survey by the Texas Medical Association also found a dramatic increase in physicians willingness to resume certain procedures they had stopped performing, including obstetrics, neurosurgical, radiation and oncological procedures."

http://www.tlrfoundation.com/texas-medical-li ...

BUT, TORT REFORM IS IGNORED IN THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION'S "REFORM" ATTEMPT BECAUSE ----

"According to opensecrets.org , Democrats received over $178,000,000 from lawyers' donations during the 2008 election cycle -- three times what they donated to Republicans. Over $43,000,000 of that went to the Obama campaign.

Forty-three million reasons why Obamacare doesn't include the one component of health care reform that has been proven to work: tort reform."

Why are tney working so many hours? Is it because of a lack of physicians? If so, how is the system going to support another 47 million patients?

Without real malpractice reform, there can be no meaningful healthcare reform. Billions of dollars are being wasted on defensive medicine, something the ambulance chasing malpractice proponents never like to discuss in their cost formulas.
