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!
