Republicans Release Their Own Health Plan

Story here. I like this part:

The GOP bill would take on medical malpractice, limiting jury awards for pain and suffering and creating new health courts in which a specially trained judge would hear and decide cases involving medical negligence.

The bill was authored by Senator Tom Price from Georgia. Note his Wikipedia bio:

Price was born in Lansing, Michigan. He grew up in Dearborn, Michigan attending Adams Jr. High and Dearborn High School, and graduated with an M.D. from the University of Michigan. He completed his residency at Emory University in Atlanta and decided to stay there afterward. He ran an orthopedic clinic in Atlanta for 20 years before returning to Emory as assistant professor of orthopedic surgery. Price also was the director of the orthopedic clinic at Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital.

Looks like they hired the right guy for the job.
