US372 - Tort Reform
One of the main drivers of skyrocketing health care costs is malpractice insurance and doctors ordering unnecessary tests to protect themselves from risk of lawsuits - yet Obamacare contains no provision for tort reform. Maria Cantwell is in the pocket of trial lawyers – just look at the public records of her campaign contributions, but I will work for the people of Washington and support balanced and fair legal reform to the health care system.
Frivolous and excessive litigation is driving up medical costs through burdensome medical malpractice insurance, court interference and pressure on doctors to practice “defensive medicine” – prescribing unnecessary diagnostics and treatment to avoid lawsuits. Democrats can’t honestly claim to care about health care cost and access while also defending tort laws that line the pockets of trial attorneys. We should create penalties for frivolous lawsuits.
