What the "reformers" really want

I saw a news article earlier today about a new proposal in Michigan. Apparently the Republicans in the Senate believe that the best way to fix the economy is to prohibit medical malpractice cases unless the plaintiff can prove the doctor intentionally caused the injury. In other words, doctors can be totally negligent and they're off the hook. Not surprisingly, doctors and insurers support the bill. Talk about a bad idea.
