Rep. Bachmann: Government Should Ban Medical Lawsuits

Appearing on CNN, Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, who often demonizes big government, promised to use big government to block Americans from suing doctors when they are injured by them: “We want to encourage people in the health care industry to offer free or reduced care to people, but in exchange for that, we’ll give them a liability shield.”

Bachmann also falsely claimed that allowing Americans to buy health insurance across state lines would somehow bring down health care costs, but failed to back up her statement, which was a talking point for the failed John McCain campaign in 2008.
