The same bottom feeders that funded the failed amendment to limit medical malpractice awards are funding this. Ask yourselves how much your and your loved one's life is worth. People forget that it came out that Ford did a cost benefit analysis is the 1970s and decided it was cheaper to pay out on wrongful death claims than to recall and fix the gas tank defect in the Pinto that caused them to explode when hit from behind. If this amendment passes that will become the norm.
