Medical Malpractice Caps

Take a hint, CANADA.

Democracy Now! explores how caps on medial malpractice suits are eventually shifted as costs to the taxpayers.

Of course, I post this because citizens and professors of my home country often boast about their “great” healthcare system which does not have “million dollar” malpractice suits.

However, because of the caps on the amounts that parties may receive in the event of malpractice, the burden then falls upon the state to pick up the cost. This is a complete waste of money and is also morally reprehensible, relieving the wrongdoer of full responsibility for the damage they have themselves caused.

It is odd that the folks at Democracy Now! would seem upset with the State redistributing wealth, but this issue is much more fundamental than wasting money, it is about achieving true justice
