I Doubt, Senator McCain!

This morning on CSPAN Senator John McCain said surely no one doubted that medical malpractice reform wouldn't drive down health care costs. He cited the experience of California and Texas, two states that undertook reform.

I live in West Texas. My health insurance premium increased almost 10% two months ago. That's not a cost decrease. For that reason I must be a no one, because I doubt your words, John McCain.

To show what a small world it is, Senator McCain mentioned Dr. Dan Stultz, my former boss. Dr. Stultz is head of the Texas Hospital Association, not the Texas Health Association referred to by the Senator from Arizona. I'm sure he got something right in his remarks on the Senate floor.
