Blue State Rumble?

Seems Pennsylvania is contemplating medical criteria. Now, it could be business-friendly legislators carrying the water against a liberal political establishment. But, if lawyers that represent cancer plaintiffs only get on board, who knows how the bill might fare.

The insurers are hoping to hit California and Michigan next year. If they can get a criteria bill in the heavily Democratic California Senate and Assembly, I'd be very impressed. I would suggest they do what they can to make some of the plaintiff's lawyers happy and isolate the ones that represent the "unimpaired" and explain to the labor unions that having contractors going bankrupt as a result of this litigation isn't good for current members or retired members on pensions.

Then again, perhaps this is how some retired union members get there "lump sum" retirement.
