Why Taking Away Patients' Rights Won't Heal Medicine's Troubles

Watch this video from the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives today. Rep. Bruce Braley explains why the bill under debate to make it harder for patients to win malpractice lawsuits won't heal any of the medical industry's troubles. And it certainly won't help improve patient safety.

These "reform" bills turn up like bad pennies every year. Nobody likes to be held accountable for carelessness and negligence. But sometimes that's the only fair thing to do. And in the case of medical malpractice, lawsuits unfortunately are the only effective system for making care providers work harder to avoid hurting patients.
