Trial lawyers are the second biggest donor to the Democrats’ Political Action Committee, trailing only the union bosses of the IBEW.
The “lawsuit industry” gives more money (roughly $127 million in 2008) to Congress than every sector of the health care industry, combined.
Medical malpractice costs continue to skyrocket to new historical highs, growing far faster than any other component of health insurance premiums.
Which makes the percentage of your health premium going to pay for the trial lawyers’ mansions roughly 75%.
And trial lawyers bring in more money than either Microsoft or Pfizer.
But Democrats — in their current addled state — won’t have a bit of it. They require money, power and control. And the trial lawyers continue to provide them with sustenance.

We realize that some of our readers think we bash the Democrat Party here more than their share but the fact is stupid is as stupid does which is Democrats cowering to their reelection campaigns instead of the American people whom they were elected to serve and represent. Some Republicans also fall into the problem of also being “campaign” purchased. It would seem to us that these “bad bills” whose passage is purchased by campaign donations cost we the taxpayers more dollars in increased taxes and medical costs then if we just bucked up and purchased some votes of our own for the rights of the taxpayers. Time for a change in Congressional leadership? Your damn right it is! Time to Axe Max and Pester Tester.
