Reform requires lower cost that was lost when Obama gave in to the trial lawyers, drug companies, unions and health care provider monoplies.

We need tort reform, purchase across state lines. I oppose mandatory purchase and Govt. intervention. However, there should be a low cost limited basic insurance pool for people that don't have any insurance.

Ahh, a Fox watcher. I hear this line from Conservatives all day long. I ask everyone one simple question.....If it was that simple why didn't George Bush do this when he held the Presidency with 6 years of a favorable Congress?

No one has ever even attempted to answer this. Please be the first!

Republicans are looking out for their jobs.
Yet they should be looking out for American jobs.

Tort Reform does not work:

Injured patients have suffered enough. They shouldn't have additional barriers thrown in their way to seek justice, or be told their life is worth a set arbitrary amount. Instead, we should focus on preventing these people from being injured in the first place. Fewer errors equals fewer injuries, and fewer injuries means less litigation. Fix the problem on the front-end, rather than discussing ways to bargain away the rights of already injured patients

Tort reform doesn't work:

Forty-six states have tort reform, and American families still shoulder exorbitant health care costs. All the facts and data say it doesn't work. There's still 98,000 people dead every year from medical errors. But when political gamesmanship and backroom deals take over, the facts fly out the window.
