Sue Bush for Malpractice

Shorter Bob Herbert: The system worked. So of course Bush wants to change it.
To bolster his argument Mr. Bush introduced a local doctor, Compton Girdharry, to an audience at Youngstown State University. Dr. Girdharry, an obstetrician/gynecologist, said he had been driven from a practice of 21 years by the high cost of malpractice insurance.

The president praised Dr. Girdharry and thanked him for his "compassion."
When you read the rest of Herbert's column, you'll see that it was a very good thing that Girdharry was forced to abandon his bloody practice. A greedy capitalist system like ours needs pushy rich lawyers to keep the rich doctors and rich insurance companies from taking all the money with total impunity.
