Howard Dean Finally Says Something Truthful … Democrats Left Tort Reform Out of Health Care Bill … They Feared ‘Taking On’ Trial Lawyers
Why was there no tort reform in the health care bill if they really wanted to reform health care?
Finally some one in the Democratic party has decided to tell the truth as to why tort reform was left out of the House healthcare bill, otherwise known as Obamacare. Howard Dean stated at a “town hall meeting on Tuesday night that Democrats in Congress did not include tort reform in the health care bill because they were fearful of taking on the trial lawyers”.
The answer from a doctor and a politician, Howard Dean, is that the Democrats were too cowardly to take on the trial lawyers. In 1500 pages of so-called health care reform, Democrats had no problem taking on the American people who’s health care coverage would be affected; however, when it came to their buddies, the trial lawyers, the point was moot.
“This is the answer from a doctor and a politician,” said Dean. “Here is why tort reform is not in the bill. When you go to pass a really enormous bill like that the more stuff you put in, the more enemies you make, right? And the reason why tort reform is not in the bill is because the people who wrote it did not want to take on the trial lawyers in addition to everybody else they were taking on, and that is the plain and simple truth. Now, that’s the truth.”
As stated at Hot Air, the Democrats have no problem demonizing the insurance companies for the high cost of health care, but will not do the same to the trial lawyers. Any one knows that comprehensive health care reform with out tort reform is BS.
As Stop the ACLU properly called it, a rare moment of truth from the screamer, Howard Dean. How bad is it getting for Democrats when Howard Dean has to come out and say something truthful like the Democrats cowered to the trial lawyers? If you noticed in the video, Congressman Morant also found himself apologizing to the man who asked the question. Democrats automatically assume that every one is hateful and have an agenda when the fact of the matter is “We the People: have concerns, question and it is government’s obligation to answer them.
