[TechAssist] Re: RCA ASC Update:

That is building replacement, contents, tools, test equipment, parts, 
etc., plus 2 million liability. Plus my homeowners carries a 1 mil rider 
in addition. You forget that I'm in WV, the "sue happiest state in the 
union". It is almost impossible to get an insurance policy here now. Why 
do you think so many doctors are leaving this state? And our dirty 
legislatures and court judges have about 13,597 excuses why 
insurance/lawsuit reform is taking so long to rectify. They should be 
given truth serum and put on statewide or national television and asked 
the same question. That way common people would know without a doubt 
when they said "We get perks and kickbacks from both plaintiffs and 
insurance companies".
