To begin with, we must fix the broken medical liability system that drives doctors out of emergency room practice, increases costs, and contributes to wait times. Some opportunistic trial lawyers, quite simply, have converted our litigation system into a lottery that damages medical care for almost everyone. We should also build more community health centers to provide free or inexpensive care for the uninsured, roll out privacy protected electronic medical records for everyone who wants them, and work to cover more Americans who currently lack health insurance.
