S.852: A FAIR Plan or Fairly Bad?

It takes a singular political talent to bring such disparate interests as trial lawyers, insurance companies, labor unions and manufacturers into common cause. So, give Senator Specter credit for putting forth a proposal that brings all these interests together...in opposition unfortunately.

Well, Senator Specter can take cold comfort in that the Washington Post editorial page supports him though how many votes that brings is an unknown. But, tomorrow everyone gets a chance to take shots at Specter's work. Just goes to show, if you try to please everybody, you end up pleasing nobody...except the Washington Post editorial board.

The fact that almost everyone with an interest in this issue opposes the bill probably indicates that it's very fair or really, really bad. The bill is, to say the least, very long and complicated.

  • What is mesothelioma?

    Mesothelioma is a rare disease caused as a result of malignant cancerous cells lining the patient's body cavities such as chest, abdominal region or the area surrounding the heart.Your legal rights:

    Corporations that manufacture asbestos products have known about the dangers of asbestos-related diseases for more than six decades. In an effort to increase profit, they kept this information quiet, putting workers and families at risk.

    Working with asbestos causes serious diseases. Unfortunately, many corporations thought they would be able to cut corners and make a large profit at the expense of endangering workers. Fortunately, there are laws that help to protect those individuals that have been harmed by exposure to asbestos-related products.

    Spread the information and help as many as possible.
    Thanks
