Proof That Some Legislators Have Read the Health Reform Bill

And then it's scary what they found:
When the bill got to the House Ways and Means Committee on July 16, it contained an especially audacious and egregious provision that could only be called a “trial lawyer earmark.” The 10-page measure would “open the door to massive liability that is neither in the public’s interest nor in the interest of the American healthcare system,” said Phil Goldberg, a lawyer who formerly served on the staff of the House Judiciary Committee and describes himself as a “lifelong Democrat.”
Kudos to Walter Olson at for bringing this to the public's attention.
