Why does Obama want “demonstration projects” on medical malpractice reform?


by swilkes

Question by Obama – Wimp in the White House: Why does Obama want “demonstration projects” on medical malpractice reform?
In Texas, 2005 limits on damages in malpractice cases has led to a 27 percent decrease in malpractice premiums. An additional half-dozen states have cut frivolous suits through similar means. Obama’s decision to do yet more state testing, rather than propose legislative changes, leaves critics worrying that he has no intention of implementing nationwide reform.

So if Texas saw a 27% reduction in cost for insurance premiums. Don’t you think this would be an effective tool for this? Or are democrats so tied into the trial lawyer association that they cannot enact this in any bill or even in a stand alone bill.

Because other states have adopted the same reforms, but premiums have gone up; therefore, Obama wants to know why the reforms only have their intended effect in some states and not others.
