President Barack Obama bluntly told doctors Monday he is against their highest legislative priority — limiting malpractice awards — and earned a smattering of boos from an audience he was here to court for his health care overhaul plans.
Don't get too excited yet. ... Just hold onto your horses here, guys," Obama said as he prepared to deliver what he knew would be disappointing news.
"I want to be honest with you. I'm not advocating caps on malpractice awards," the president said, greeted by a smattering of boos, a remarkable public response to a popular president accustomed to cheering audiences

If a Doctor kills his patients, he can be sued. If an insurance company, refuses to allow life saving operations, they can be sued. If a government beaurocrat refuses to allow life saving treatments, no earthly court will dole out punishment. That is tort reform ,but it is probably not what most people want.
