Estimates of annual deaths in the US from preventable medical error in the hundreds of thousands.  Insurance company profits through the roof.  Only 84 suits filed in Wisconsin last year?  

Is there really a need for stricter limits on claims.  Why not pass a bill instead that simply says patients have no rights at all?  That would be more direct and more honest.
Only 84 suits were filed in Wisconsin last year, down from 140 the previous year, as lawyers these days “just don’t want to take medical malpractice cases,” one expert says.

One thing that stands out is the position that Congress should wait until more states decriminalize marijuana before they take action to reschedule.  

What is striking about this and makes no sense is that the same government that classifies marijuana as Schedule 1 (no medical purpose) has issued numerous patents for the medical use of cannibinoids/cannabis (dating back to the 1980's)  through the United States Patent and Trademark Office including one patent issued to another U.S. government agency, Health and Human Services.

US Patent 6630507 states in its abstract in no uncertain terms that cannabis does have medical applications.  There are 29 single spaced pages of medical science behind the patent application which was granted including cites to other medical cannabis related patents.  

The Abstract is pretty clear on the medical use of cannabis:  

 "Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV
dementia."

So in the end, why is it again that Congress must await state action on decriminalization for rescheduling of marijuana to reflect well-established science.  But then again, the same question might be asked on any number of science based realities such as climate change against which Congress rebels.  
As Americans move toward more favorable views of pot, politicians are, too — in some cases.

The move follows a spate of drug-resistant infections traced to contaminated duodenoscopes.

Pretty disgusting if true.  The apology does not seem to match the actions: 

“I have put my heart and soul into my work with veterans for many years. I hold all veterans and military personnel in the highest regard..."

Deployed service members often cannot sue lenders for violating laws that protect them from repossessions and foreclosures because of legal language that forces them into arbitration.

Federal law requires publicly-funded medical researchers to promptly report the results of many experimental treatments. But few are doing so, a review shows, and patients may be hurt.

Awesome and very moving acceptance speeches from Legend and Common.  Absolutely worth watching if you missed them.  
In an elephantine spectacle with few awards surprises, the Martin Luther King, Jr. movie provided a song and two acceptance speeches for the ages
