In the most brazen, unashamed display of hypocricy this election year, the Breck Girl actually stated with a straight face that frivolous law suits are partially to blame for the rising level of health care in this country. Bleated the Breck Girl....
"I think that the bulk of the problem is created when cases are filed in the legal system that should never be filed, and the results are years of litigation and costs that are incurred by the health care provider that should not have been incurred," Edwards said. "A lot of that responsibility goes to the lawyers."
He wants to require two medical professionals to sign off on any claim before it is filed.
That's not a bad idea as long as the medical professionals on the panel are actual practicing doctors and not political appointees.
The shocking thing about his statement however, is that he is one of the biggest abusers of the frivolous law-suit tactic of personal enrichment in America. John Edwards personally raped the system of tens of millions of dollars by suing doctors and hospitals in North Carolina courts, using phoney "medical" data to tug at the heart-strings of stupid morons who served as jurors. Because of his ridiculous law suits, hospitals and doctors dramatically ramped up their malpractice insurance to the point that many of them had to abandon the practice of medicine and find other lines of work. It's been shown over and over that what Silky Pony claimed in court was patently false and he knew it was false when he used it to seduce cretins in the jury box to award him millions of other peoples' dollars.
He's comically far behind in the presidential polls now and we can relax and poke some fun. Let's just hope Hillary doesn't tap him for VP.
