While Americans wait for a bill that will bring about health care reform, some in Congress are working to erode the rights of Americans.
Ted Kennedy’s good friend, Sen.Orrin Hatch, supports tort reform and wants to make it part of a health care bill.

A step in the right direction towards Hell, maybe. Perhaps the senator was referring to the number he got from the Insurance Industry. Here’s a letter sent to Hatch from Congress.Org.
Subject: Your $600,000 from the insurance industry.
To: Sen. Orrin Hatch

"I pledge allegiance to the insurance companies of America …"Following is a list of the money taken from the insurance lobby by United States senators (opensecrets.org). I stopped the list at $500,000. No-one gives this kind of money without expecting something in return, or takes it without the reasonable expectation of being asked to deliver.
(From the list):
Hatch, Orrin G (R-UT) $672,557

Bend over America . You are about to get pricked by health care reform. Might we someday see warning labels on our medicine bottles:
“WARNING: The Attorney General has determined that if this medication is harmful to your health, you are S.O.L.”
