DR. FRIST'S BEDSIDE MANNER 

DR. FRIST'S BEDSIDE MANNER

According to the AP, Americans for Insurance Reform, a coalition of groups opposed to U.S. senator/doctor/insurance man/kitty-killer Bill Frist's push to put a cap on medical malpractice claims, has begun a multistate advertising campaign. In one of the group's 30-second TV spots, a devastated couple tells how their 2-year-old son died of dehydration because he was not given a simple IV after being taken to a hospital. Frist, who has been hanging out in Beijing, told reporters he has not seen the ads, but that "we absolutely must ... eliminate the frivolous lawsuits affecting in a negative way access to quality care for the American people." DUH! You can always have another kid, for gosh sakes.
