Major newspapers blast Bush’s “tort reform” plan

(1/11/2022) - This week, major newspapers around the U.S. opposed the President’s plan to severely cap pain and suffering awards in medical negligence cases. Here is a round up--

Akron Beacon Journal: Much sympathy for victims of tsunami yet little for the truly injured who sue in court?

Boston Globe: The problem with medical malpractice is not that a jury occasionally awards $1 million in pain and suffering damages to a victim but that so much malpractice occurs in the first place.

LA Times: There's not much evidence to support President Bush's assertion last week that medical malpractice awards are to blame for high healthcare costs.

Macon Telegraph: Award Caps Not Solution to Tort Reform Problem

NYT: Malpractice Mythology

Philadelphia Inquirer: Hype over “tort reform” rhetoric over reality

Roanoke Times: So much for facts on “tort reform”

Tampa Tribune: No Need for Federal Controls on Medical Malpractice Awards

Winston-Salem Journal: As President Bush travels the country pushing for limits on pain and suffering awards for Americans who win medical malpractice, he should remember that these cases often begin with an incompetent doctor.
