Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website reports that the Pelosi Health Care Bill Blows a Kiss to Trial Lawyers:

Section 2531, entitled “Medical Liability Alternatives,” establishes an incentive program for states to adopt and implement alternatives to medical liability litigation. [But]…… a state is not eligible for the incentive payments if that state puts a law on the books that limits attorneys’ fees or imposes caps on damages.

I guess I’ve got a different definition for “incentive”.
