Daschle: Tort reform necessary in healthcare bill

Associated Press, June 16, 2009

Former Sen. Tom Daschle says controlling the cost of malpractice insurance will have to be a part of the Obama administration's overhaul of the healthcare system. The onetime Democratic leader in the Senate said he believes "tort reform is going to be on the table," and that it's important that all "stakeholders" in the looming debate be given a chance to be heard, according to the Associated Press.
