Political discussion and ranting, premised upon the fact that even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
That's really unfair, Aaron.I'm quite sure Bush is concerned about malpractice victims if they're members of his family.
Bob Herbert adds a few thoughts...."Moreover, in several states specifically characterized by the A.M.A. as in "crisis," the evidence is rolling in that malpractice claims and awards are not appreciably increasing, and in some instances are declining. ... One of the red states is Missouri. But a press release in April from the Missouri Department of Insurance said, "Missouri medical malpractice claims, filed and paid, fell to all-time lows in 2003 while insurers enjoyed a cash-flow windfall." ... Another red state on the A.M.A. map is New Jersey. ... The [Bergen Record, after successfully obtaining insurance industry data,] reported that an analysis of the data showed that malpractice payments in New Jersey had declined by 21 percent from 2001 to 2003."
