Fabric_Man: Please. Everyone knows chiropractic isn't medicine!
violetvolume: If we have learned anything about Rick Santorum ANY politician, it's that it's different when it's him.

threedingers: isn't this like arguing that Jon Stewart is a hypocrite for advocating higher taxes on the rich if he himself pays 15%
threedingers: As much as I loathe Santorum and everything he stands for, isn't this like arguing that Jon Stewart is a hypocrite for advocating higher taxes on the rich if he himself pays 15% (or 20% or whatever) on his income?It's an invalid argument in either case.
hailin: Meh, I think pain and suffering should be eliminated because it is just a bullshiat way to put emotion into a lawsuit, which is completely subjective to how the jury responds to an emotional plea. If something happens and you need a lifetime of care, fine then get your couple million or whatever will provide you care and move on. You are a complete waste of space to sue for an additional million on TOP of getting you condition taken care of just because of "suffering". I'm sure pain meds are rolled into your lifetime of care.
LazarusLong42: His wife's partial birth abortion was different too.

Now, if he had said "raise taxes on all the rich but me" he'd be a hypocrite. The reality, however, is that you're throwing out a strawman and your skills of logic and deductive reasoning fall somewhere below the level of Trig Palin.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: In a sane world Rick Santorum wouldn't be able to hold a seat on the Potato Salad Task Force of the Church Picnic Committee, yet here and now there are literally millions of idiots who think he'd make a fine president. Thankfully not nearly enough millions of idiots to get Rick elected, but, still.As I've said before -- Pennsylvanians tried to warn you about Rick when we FINALLY stepped up and handed him the most historic beating in our election history. As bone-dumb, petty and hypocritical as you think Rick Santorum is, he's much, much worse.
TimonC346: Of course there needs to be reform in malpractice lawsuits, yes, but doesn't capping do a bit too much to protect physicians? 250k won't cover much for the uninsured if they need to use those funds to repair damage done,
TheChemist: Fine. As long as we cap medical bills at the same.No? Then nothing doing. Do these people have no concept of why people sue for malpractice? My own grandmother had to sue just to get her surgery bills paid after the doctors farked up- around $50,000 for the surgery plus an ungodly amount for drugs, recuperative therapy, and other problems that complicated her existing medical conditions. Bonus- both her sons are doctors who knew exactly where and how he had farked up, and why he shouldn't have.$250,000 is nothing for some people who have had doctors make mistakes in treating them. Remove the wrong limb? We're talking about a lifetime of prosthetics and potentially lost income.
