Does the Wisconsin Supreme Court's recent decision striking down limits on medical malpractice lawsuit reflect the views of the state's voters? It sure doesn't look that way, to judge from a public opinion poll commissioned by the state medical association and hospital society. "68 percent of the respondents said they would be more likely to vote for a candidate for the state legislature who supported a cap." Owen of Boots and Sabers says it's "nice to see that the vast majority of Wisconsin citizens get this issue. They understand the gravity of what the Supreme Court did and how it can directly affect how much they pay for health care."
