    • On July 27, 2011, by stephanieforsyth - I implore you to stop advocating for big business and against the people. This is essentially a bill for forcing patients into arbitration agreements so they can't sue when someone messes up. Arbitration is chosen by the hospital/big business and finds for the plaintiffs (patients) 10% or less of the time. Stop helping big business at the cost of real human individuals.
