Interesting to read the stories of Illinois U S Senate candidate, Mark Kirk’s (R-Ill.) candidate’s speeches this week about health care. Seems like up until now he’s never cared much about the issue. But, it’s a popular topic, so he comes to a press conference flanked by a couple of doctors and leadership from the U S Chamber. Now that’s a group that has the American consumer in it’s sights.
They purposely put forward:Let’s limit all of the lawsuits and make a couple of modest insurance changes. Each of the changes seemed focused almost exclusively on saving money for the insurance companies. Never mind that the Injuryboard members have been documenting for some time now that malpractice rates are down and that medical malpractice is a very small part of the overall budgets and that this frivolous tort reform doesn’t work.
But, candidate Kirk really isn’t out there to help the system. This is purely a tip of the passed hat. He’s raising money with the insurance companies and big business. At least call it what it is. While others are working hard to create a system to help all consumers, he is just looking for the campaign money. Hopefully, Illinois voters will see it for what it is.
