ORWELL WATCH….Should pain and suffering

ORWELL WATCH….Should pain and suffering awards to victims of medical malpractice be capped at $250,000? Or something higher?

“There is no particular magic in $250,000 as opposed to $350,000,” Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the No. 3 Republican in the House, said after the vote. Blunt said the goal was simply to put patients first.

Putting patients first? Can I just say that I hope Roy Blunt never sees fit to put me first? I could do without his help, I think.
