Re: Aughsum, and all other commies....
Blueskies, you forgot about tort reform. There is no need to have a dozen tests that aren't needed just so the doctor can cover his butt in case of a malpractice lawsuit.
I think tort reform is necessary, but I believe it is overstated in importance.
Anyway, for tort reform you simply take the legal thing out of the equation entirely.
Give doctors complete legal immunity, and then have patients opt to purchase individual insurance plans that would compensate the individuals for any malpractice that occurs.
