Santorum a Whore for his money

The ultimate flip-flopper (and closet case), Rick Santorum tries to put a malpractice cap of $250k on all lawsuits, but his wife was awarded $350k in a frivolous malpractice case (which she filed for $500k) recently!

What a double standard this idiot lives...

The Senator's Wife Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., says that the No. 1 health care crisis in his state is medical lawsuit abuse and in the past he's called for a $250,000 cap on non-economic damage awards or awards for pain and suffering. "We need to do something now to fix the medical liability problem in this country," he declared at a rally in Washington D.C., this past spring. But Santorum's wife sued a doctor for $500,000 in 1999. She claimed that a botched spinal manipulation by her chiropractor led to back surgery, pain and suffering, and sued for twice the amount of a cap Santorum has supported.
