Graham, Chambliss seek to address medical malpractice with "Loser Pays" amendment

side note: Republicans are trying to kill the Affordable Care Act, but at the same time, they are trying to insert strong tort reforms in the legislation. Two senators want to add loser pays language to the bill, where the loser of a malpractice lawsuit would have to pay the legal costs of the other party.

WASHINGTON — United States Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Georgia) last week introduced their ‘Loser Pays’ legislation as an amendment to the health care bill. The amendment would decrease the number of frivolous lawsuits that increase the cost of medical care for all Americans.
