The best health care system in the world is unlikely to succeed in killing you if your sister is a good enough lawyer

That's the basic moral of this story.
I did a town hall-style health care debate last night in Denver with Hugh Hewitt, before an audience of 973 people, 964 of whom were shall we say predisposed to favor Hewitt's views on the matter over mine. One of the questions from the audience was about the linked controversy, which was proffered as evidence that Obama is telling lies to get "his" proposal enacted. Hewitt's main argument against the present proposals is that they don't do enough to lower medical malpractice costs, when ironically stories like this are if anything arguments for universal access to good legal advice.
