The problem is that those who want to "fix" it, that brought this up in the first place--i.e., Republicans--are, like everyone in DC, looking at this as a black and white issue. they do nto realy want to fix it. They simply want to eliminate the right of people to sue doctors, period, just like they want to get rid of "government regulations" that block innovations for everyone even though they are protecting against something going wrong for some people, and are fine with getting rid of universl health care because it unfairly taxes everyone and props up some fraud and waste, even though without it there are some people who cannot afford insurance through no real fault of their own. So this is why most Democrats are against even bringing the issue up--if the matter is put into a bill, the Republicans will simply try to eliminate tort as a possibility, not reform it. As the debt ceiling debate demonstrates, Republicans are not willing to negotiate, just dictate. What I love is that they can make it sound like they are working against evil lawyers, because everyone likes to make fun of greedy lawyers. But 90 percent of our legislators are lawyers--and greedy ones at that.

Thank you for bringing up the reality of what many doctors face--the fear of being sued. There has to be a better balance between holding health professionals liable for errors and patients suing the daylights out of well-intentioned professionals who render care to the best of their abilities and knowledge. This does pertain to the current healthcare debate. Nothing works well, including health care (no matter who's in charge of it), without integrity and honesty on the part of both the provider and the recipient.

Our country need tort reform, but even more than that, its every citizen needs a reformation of morals--a return to doing what is right in every area of life. Who's to say what is right? Good question, but the Golden Rule might be a good place to start.
