The Republicans should present this great plan for tort reform:

Since the President rails against the insurance companies 3-5% profits, we will reduce the trial lawyers profits down from 40-60% of settlements to 3-5%, thus insuring the money actually goes to the poor patient.

Now liberals normally complain that if you reduce trial laweyters take lower than 40%, they simply won’t take peoples cases - BANG! Another brilliant Obamacare policy can be used here, you simply mandate that trial lawyers have to take every case that comes to them.

If insurance companies can’t turn people away - why should trial lawyers be allowed to, Mr. President?

Now trial lawyers are required to take every sob story case and can’t make more than 5% profit - wala, tort reform - Obama-style!

That would look great in an amicus brief, filed by Republican lawmakers and presidential contenders with the Supreme Court in the challenge to the constitutionality of the health care bill, and submitted as the next piece of legislation if Obamacare is ruled constitutional. The justices probably wouldn’t object to serfdom of the insurance industry, but serfdom of lawyers wouldn’t be something they’d want to rule constitutional.
