Bill: Make Them Pay Act

Details

Submitted by[?]: Democratic Action Party

Status[?]: defeated

Votes: This is an ordinary bill. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.

Voting deadline: December 3274

Description[?]:

Because there are no medical expenses associated with the free public system, there is no strong incentive for state doctors to avoid mistakes and failures in care, and no way for wronged patients to gain adequate redress. May them pay!

MessageMr. Speaker,

Responsibility is currently shifted to the wrong people with populist slogans. In reality doctors can make mistakes, yes. As can any human being. And yes it is tragic if this leads to problems or even death, but making someone suffer for the rest of their lifes, not neccesarily because of neglect, but simply for doing their job is wrong in any way possible.

MessageMr. Speaker,

Doctors need to be regulated by a regulatory body of medical experts. We do not need to get money-grabbing lawyers involved in this.
