National Journal blogger's poll on med-mal

Some interestingly cross-cutting results, summarized by National Journal as "Would Tort Reform Make Pill Easier To Swallow? Right-Leaning Bloggers Say They'd Support A Health Care Bill That Included It; Some Left-Leaners Would Hold Their Nose For It." The results, though, may have been influenced by wording that was susceptible to multiple interpretations. I added this comment, raising a sub-issue that I think might make a good topic for bipartisan discussions:

My pet proposal? Work on out-of-court dispute resolution methods for the sizable share of medical care the federal government already provides. Alas, Congress is headed in the other direction, as with its interest in opening up med-mal suits by active-duty personnel against military doctors.
