I don't like 'required legal liability insurance' - but I wouldn't mind single-payer for lawyers. It would be like free healthcare in Europe. Except it would be free lawcare in the USA.
Here are the advantages:

  • Smaller suits could be pursued without having to worry about billable hours.

  • Outrageous billable hours would be a thing of the past.

  • Good incentives for the government to cut back on frivolous suits.

  • Yes this post is a bit of a joke. But I would like to hear the lawyers squeal about how unfair single payer is. I wish it happened to them instead of the doctors.

    Don't we already have single-payer defense?
