Tantalize Them With Tort Reform: The Policy & Practice Podcast

After President Obama’s State of the Union speech on Jan. 25, physicians across the country were abuzz.  The President threw out the idea that he might, just might, consider revisiting the medical liability issue, since it was not really addressed as part of health reform beyond a few demonstration grants in the Affordable Care Act.

The American Medical Association praised the President for talking about tort reform.  The American College of Physicians did also.  But the ACP went even further in a press briefing last week, putting Congress on notice that it would not support a repeal of health reform.

Listen to what those groups had to say — plus the results of the latest poll on how Americans feel about the repeal effort — in this week’s edition of the Policy & Practice Podcast.

And come back next week for more on the impact of a ruling by a federal judge in Florida that health reform is unconstitutional.
