Pete Coors on Health Care

2004 former Republican Senate Challenger (CO)

US has world’s least efficient health-care system

We have the least efficient health-care delivery system in the world,“ which results in higher costs, Coors said. Although he didn’t know how to make the American health-care system more efficient, Coors said reforming the tort system and reducing the number of plaintiff and class-action lawsuits could lower costs.

Lawsuit abuse is responsible for health care costs

Lawsuit abuse in America is out of control. It’s causing health care costs to skyrocket and putting doctors out of business. While we lose, the trial lawyers cash in and liberal judges turn a blind-eye.
