    The healthcare problem today is not at the feet of the insurance conpanies or the doctors as the Media would have you belive. The problem is with the vampire lawyers who thrive off of blowing a pimple into a mountain. Simple TORT reform would bring cost of healthcare down to the point where we could all afford it. Your doctor would lower his bill if he did not have to pay 1/3 of his income for malpractice insurance.
