ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Why are there so many missing reforms in the Democrats’ health care reform bill? The Democrats’ plans do not include massive medical malpractice tort reform, provisions to allow for insurance companies to sell health care across state lines to increase competition, evidence-based medicine requirements; mandates that government employees must give up their current gold-plated health plans, or criminal liabilities for health care professionals who treat illegals without reporting them to authorities.

Without reforming some of the key cost components, the Democrats are not really reforming health care or making it more affordable. Their lack of such cost reforms curiously seems to benefit only illegal aliens; trial lawyers; current government unions; and potential, future nationalized health care employee unions.
