Palin Takes On... Tort Reform

More

In her latest Facebook post, ex-AK Gov. Sarah Palin claims health care reform won't be worth the name unless it includes medical malpractice reform, too.

As Governor of Alaska, I learned a little bit about being a target for frivolous suits and complaints (Please, do I really need to footnote that?). I went my whole life without needing a lawyer on speed-dial, but all that changes when you become a target for opportunists and people with no scruples. Our nation's health care providers have been the targets of similar opportunists for years, and they too have found themselves subjected to false, frivolous, and baseless claims. To quote a former president, "I feel your pain."
