Rowan Scarborough has the top story at Human Events today.

“America’s Affordable Health Choices Act” establishes new routes by which insurance company employees can sue. It sets up new mandates and regulations on care providers, providing more avenues to go court. And it will allow lawyers to file suits over decisions made by arbiters in patient vs. insurance company disputes.
This analysis comes from Republican congressional staffers, who tell HUMAN EVENTS they plan to offer a full report later this week.
