Consumer Watchdog to Obama: Don't Sacrifice Malpractice Victims in the Name of Health Care Reform
Date:9/9/2009

WASHINGTON, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- President Obama should not make innocent Americans injured by cost-cutting hospitals and negligent doctors a political sacrifice in his quest for health care reform, said Consumer Watchdog in advance of the President's health care speech tonight.

State malpractice damage caps and other limits on liability for negligent health care providers have locked injured patients out of court, degraded the quality of health care and denied justice to too many families, said Consumer Watchdog.
