Kevin points out the most important reason Obamacare must not be allowed to happen:
Now, when the .gov takes over the $2.3 trillion in annual health expenditures, what do you want to bet one way they’ll eventually attempt to limit costs will be by limiting patient’s right to sue for malpractice?
Now I’ll state right up front that I sincerely believe that tort law needs to be reformed, and it’s long overdue, but there are cases such as this one where the patient MUST be compensated. This young man went in for gall bladder surgery, and came out missing his legs. He now faces months of rehabilitation, prosthetics, and a lot of pain, plus he’s out of his job, facing medical retirement on about half of his current $1,600 monthly income.
But the government cannot be held responsible.
And Obama and company want to foist upon us a system that will, sooner or later, be just like this.
I’ve never been in favor of Obamacare, but this puts the issue in a whole new light.
