this is about politics and not about care.
To say that the problem is only a TORT reform issue is a huge oversimplification designed straight republican talking points.
The affordable healthcare act is an imperfect solution at best but...
-The massive cost of healthcare is result of...
-Our aging population
-Enormous admin costs driven by insurance company profit moives
-Waste and Fraud by healthcare providers
-A la carte medical care driven patients
A real solution would involve everyone giving something up.
Some Doctors giving up some pay or at least changing their fee structure to some sort of pay for performance.
Some sort of curtailing of insurance costs either through competition or regulation or both
A general shift in allocation of resources from expensive after the fact procedures to cost cutting preventive measures.

All this is really moot. The fatter this country gets the more expensive healthcare is going to get, regardless of who is paying for it.
Insert pithy saying here.
what an unaffordable mess the left has dumped on america
Guess What Healthcare was an unsustainable ballooning cost long before the ACA.
Yes, yes, an unaffordable mess that will reduce the defict by $200 Billion. Crazy left.
"I would rather have my ignorance than another man's knowledge, because I have so much more of it."
"Get your facts first and then you can distort them as much as you wish."
"We all do no end of feeling, and we mistake it for thinking."
Where is my free Obama care? I want my free cell phone. I want free food stamps. Give me, give me, give me...what a country.
Giving basic preventative healthcare to this country's populous is ultimately a cost SAVER.
An overweight, sickly, diseased populace is inherently unproductive.
Once the Republicans had turned this into a political issue and completely distorted the facts people are posting nonsense like this.
If you are going to criticize the ACA at least do it where it deserves criticism.
It makes completely unrealistic calculations and ask physicians to take cuts to service that will result in docs leaving the profession. The AMA signed off on the law because they were promised fixes down the road.
