You couldn't leave the bank with that much cash without a forklift.
I'd been thinking for last few years, that the government should not be
telling doctors what to prescribe, or what not to prescribe. But, you worded
it a bit better than I was able to.
Someone told me years ago, you can only sue the govenment, with the

I wish someone could/would file a class action "something" against The
DEA for practicing medicine without a license, which is what those
bureaucrats and armed cowboys are doing. O_o
No it isn't.
It's all the people making money off enforcement.
I believe GWB, Obama, Clinton, etc. are powerless
against the career DEA, prisons, courts, cops, doctors, and the drug lobby.
If you are in serious pain, the right kind of doctor to see is one that
specializes in pain. (Pain doctor, or pain clinic.)
If you need medication, they are more familiar with fighting the DEA
The glaring omission in your list - lawyers, which includes many/most
politicians, courts, and is what the rest use as their big stick. The
DEA and medical profession's defense is no match for the lawyers'
We need to revamp the legal system before we can revamp any of the

but not in the USA where the dollar reigns supreme.
We did. In Texas. We capped malpractice awards at $250,000 and malpractice
insurance rates fell through the floor. In fact, malpractice rates have
declined every year since the reforms took place in 2007. Not only that, but
the state has seen an increase (I think 15%) in the number of physicians
practicing in the state.
No, your idea is a good one and it's proved by empirical experience. As an
aside, tort reform has been a plank in the Republican's proposals regarding
health care for a long time.
My ass. Have you ever heard of that Democrat, Harry the-buck-stops-here
Truman? Well, it's now it's the Demomonicrat Barak not-my-fault Hussein
it's-Bush's-fault Obama. The fact is that he *is* the boss.
