    The health care bill recently unveiled by Speaker Nancy Pelosi is over 1,900 pages for a reason. It is much easier to dispense goodies to favored interest groups if they are surrounded by a lot of legislative legalese. For example, check out this juicy morsel to the trial lawyers (page 1431-1433 of the bill):

    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.

    So, you can’t try to seek alternatives to lawsuits if you’ve actually done something to implement alternatives to lawsuits. Brilliant! The trial lawyers must be very happy

    Disgusting, isn't it. The one real thing we could do to keep health care costs down, and the liberals in the congress and senate want no part of it. That's why this health care bill is not about health care reform, it's about a take over of 6% of our economy. You ask, why would they want to do this? The answer, they are a bunch of power freaks, they are addicted to power and control, this addiction is worse than any drug addiction, they just can't get enough of it. They have HUGE egos and they have to feed their egos.

    The republicans are coming out with their plan next week, it's got to be better than this.
