Dr. no job, it's obvious that there are as many dishonest doctors as there are lawyers, one wants to blame the other. You know if some quack removes your right nut instead of a wart on your nose or prescribes viagra for high blood pressure wouldn't you think there should be some liability there. You might look into Iraq, not many trial lawyers there and they are in dier need of good doc's!!
I'm not defending lawsuit abuse or frivoulous lawsuits. My point is that insurance co's whine about having to charge higher premiums because of an overabundance of lawsuits. They turn it into a political issue and slam lawyers as being the bad guys when in reality they are "all" bad guys because they're "all" greedy... lawyers and ins. CEO's alike.
Karl Rove was successful in establishing this as a "campaign" issue years ago. It's caught on as a conservative mantra.
