Blame it all on lawyers. Their ambulance chasing drove up the cost of healthcare, which drove up the cost of insurance, which caused people to complain, which gave the Democrats the opportunity to take control over the healthcare industry, which in turn will give them the power to take contol over us. The lawyers and the Democrats made sure that tort reform would not happen.
Easy there, Lynn. "Lawyers" as an aggregate isn't fair. I agree that the med-mal plaintiff's guys have gotten away with murder, but don't lump us all in the same category. More than half of my business is directly tied to helping individual inventors receive their just rewards for their intellectual property - what they conceived of - and have no ability to pay to enforce that IP against the big corporations that negotiate their tax bill with the U.S. Gov't, or worse, don't pay their fair share of taxes because they are foreign corporations with U.S. operating shells.
