Looks like I wasted my time downloading the 1018 page health care bill. It looks like there's some major changes coming as the administration has decided to reconsider the "public option".
I searched the PDF version of the bill and did not find a hit for: "malpractice", "lawsuit", or "tort". It seems to me that we should address the issue of lawsuits and malpractice insurance in any discussion about healthcare reforms.
I also searched "death panel" - didn't find it.
