Health Courts Continue to Gain Bipartisan Support From 2012 Presidential Candidates
Date:3/26/2012

NEW YORK, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney advocated the creation of specialized health courts in an op-ed published on Thursday by USA Today. In the op-ed, Romney stated:

"Finally, we need to address out-of-control medical malpractice litigation, which is costly not only in direct terms, but also in its distortion of the way patient care is administered. We can start by capping non-economic damages, but the federal government should also encourage states to pursue additional reforms such as specialized health care courts or other alternatives for resolving conflicts." 

President Obama and Newt Gingrich have both previously endorsed the creation of special health courts. In a letter to Congressional leaders released by The White House on March 2, 2010, President Obama endorsed health courts and proposed an appropriation of $50 million for demonstration grants including health courts. In an op-ed article in The New York Times on February 21, 2010, Newt Gingrich endorsed health courts.

The three 2012 presidential candidates join numerous bipartisan commissions in endorsing this common sense solution. President Obama's U.S. deficit commission – formally known as the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform – endorsed the creation of specialized health courts when a bipartisan majority of its members approved its report on December 3, 2010.
