Making medical costs unaffordable, ~~~ Back in 1977 the United States Supreme Court upheld the right of lawyers to advertise their services.
You see them on TV everyday, Lawyers advertising their services, promising the possibility for financial gain for the viewer. They file suit against a large drug manufacturer, insurance company, food distributor, or whoever......it really doesn't matter who, just as long as they know that the target has deep pockets and it's so much easier and cheaper to settle for a few million than to enter into a long drawn out legal battle.
The correlation between the 1977 ruling and the climb in insurance rates is hard to ignore
