Folks, it is not Obamacare that costs so much, it is out of control CYA tests and procedures made necessary by runaway medical litigation. Whether it comes out of your left pocket or right pocket is immaterial.

Furthermore, the quality of care in the US is severely impacted by the distraction caused by physicians’ attention being turned away from patient well-being by the need for CYA procedures.

Why don’t we hear more about the real cause of out-of-control health care costs caused by excessive litigation? Here’s a hint: legislators are almost all lawyers.
