Speaker of the House Boehner is committed to passing law which will allegedly shield pro-Obamacare doctors, medical and drug device companies, hospitals and nursing homes from malpractice lawsuits. It is being touted as an effort to stop “costly junk lawsuits and curb defensive medicine.”
Evidently, this legislation (in its’ 2011 proposal) was deemed unconstitutional, because it attempts to usurp the state’s rights at legislating important tort laws and that it can override existing state laws. Oddly, Tea Party spokespersons are against it for that simple reason – that it violates their values of limiting government and individual rights by federal overreaching.
Once again one needs to question the motives behind such legislation. What is the purpose of attempting to enact such legislation? Are these politicians looking to protect individual rights; I strongly submit they are not. Are they looking to improve health care; I strongly submit not. Are they looking to shorten the time period that an individual waits for care, medical devices or drug therapy; I submit not. Are they looking to safeguard the integrity of the justice system; I submit that they are not. Are they looking to find another reason to repeal Obamacare by creating unconstitutional legislation; I submit they may be. Are they looking to protect special interests at the risk of promoting substandard health care services; I submit they are.
So why would you elect officials who represent themselves as being your representative when their motives are so apparently perverted? Why would the electorate continue to support politicians who use their office to protect special interests as opposed to being concerned for individuals’ health care needs?
