House Rep. Braley's Argument Opposing Tort Reform

In this video clip from C-Span, Rep. Braley of  Iowa takes a fascinating position on the tort reform debate, noting that with all the talk regarding the astronomical (and rising) costs of health care and doctors' insurance, the most critical aspect of the issue had gone unaddressed: improving patient safety. Citing several non-partisan studies, Rep. Braley asserts that taking expert-recommended steps to reduce medical errors is likely to have a far greater impact on reducing medical costs than the caps currently being proposed in Congress.
