I am not a big fan of lawyers. I know they have their place for things like property dealings, legal agreements, wills, family issues etc but those who make a living by bringing frivolous lawsuits are a blight on our country. I despise them with a passion, they cost all of us thousands of dollars in increased prices of goods, car insurance costs, health insurance premiums, doctor fees and the list goes on. These leaches have almost no redeeming qualities. Even the people who have legitimate cases for a lawsuit are screwed over by these sharks because they many times will settle out of court and take their percentage of the claim then move on to the next case because they can make more money from a high volume of cases rather than spending weeks and months on a legitimate case.
I think this country needs major tort reform but lawyers control the legal system as well as the government and for this reason it seems the vast majority of lawyers who make a living from lawsuits are big supporters of liberal politicians who fight to squash tort reform.
This got me to thinking the other day when the SCOTUS upheld the 0bama health care tax (yes 0bama is spelled with a zero) I wonder if these lowlife lawyers realize what the government has done to them.
One thing the government hates is someone stealing the money they have taken from us, for this reason the federal government insulates themselves from lawsuits at all costs. I was thinking if and when the entire health care system, doctors, hospitals, health insurance etc is a government program I am quite sure there will be protection from lawsuits against the government healthcare system. Kind of funny in a way seeing as health care, doctor and hospital lawsuits are a major chunk of frivolous lawsuits.
Maybe some of those lawyers can get a more productive job like picking up my garbage.
