You know how some people say that Americans deserve the same health care that Congress provides for itself? Maybe we should rethink that.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the following on the death of U.S. Rep. John Murtha:
Mr. Murtha was first hospitalized with gallbladder problems in December. He had surgery Jan. 28 at the National Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Md. He went home, but was hospitalized two days later when complications developed.
According to a source close to Mr. Murtha — confirming a report in Politico — doctors inadvertently cut Mr. Murtha’s intestine during the laparoscopic surgery, causing an infection.
On the other hand, neither does it appear to be the proper time to debate limits on malpractice lawsuits.
