Of Course… Pelosi's Bill Will Punish States Who Pass Tort Reform
It figures. The Pelosi Plan will punish states that limit trial lawyers’ winnings.
Capital Confidential reported this at Big Government:
Section 2531, entitled “Medical Liability Alternatives,” establishes an incentive program for states to adopt and implement alternatives to medical liability litigation. [But]…… a state is not eligible for the incentive payments if that state puts a law on the books that limits attorneys’ fees or imposes caps on damages.
Tort reform could save the country $54 billion.
So it only makes sense that democrats would oppose it.
More… The death panels are back in the bill, too.
