Pa. Pubs Fast Track Bill To Hike Car Insurance

Republican politicians throughout  the nation are puzzled and angry at the lack of love coming from their constituents. So they don’t have to use their not-so-hard earned money to buy a clue, here is a gift of one.

House Bill 2246 is winding its way through Harrisburg and the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania Senate appears to be putting it on a fast-track for passage.

What the bill does is to allow  trial lawyers to use non-verifiable evidence to seek pain and suffering damages for those injured in car accidents.

This is expected to increase the cost of automobile insurance premiums by 5 to 10 percent.

A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 21 with a vote by the full Senate expected shortly afterwards.

The bill were introduced at the request of the state’s trial bar association, which now calls itself the Pennsylvania Association for Justice.

The language to quantify pain and suffering awards was inserted into HB 2246, which was originally a bill dealing with  accident scene management and general vehicle matters.

  1. A Philadelphia lawyer died in poverty, and many people donated to a fund for his funeral. Mayor Frank Rizzo was asked to donate a dollar. “Only a dollar?” said the Mayor “Only a dollar to bury a lawyer? Here’s a twenty go and bury twenty more of them.”

  2. What and who am I?
    A snake and a rabbit were racing along a pair of intersecting forest pathways one day, when they collided at the intersection. They immediately began to argue with one another as to who was at fault for the mishap.

    When the snake remarked that he had been blind since birth, and thus should be given additional leeway, the rabbit said that he, too, had been blind since birth. The two animals then forgot about the collision and began commiserating concerning the problems of being blind.

    The snake said that his greatest regret was the loss of his identity. He had never been able to see his reflection in the water, and for that reason did not know exactly what he looked like, or even what he was. The rabbit declared that he had the same problem. Seeing a way that they could help each other, the rabbit proposed that one feel the other from head to toe, and then try to describe what the other animal was.

    The snake agreed, and started by winding himself around the rabbit. After a few moments, he announced, “You’ve got very soft, fuzzy fur, long ears, big rear feet, and a little fuzzy ball for a tail. I think that you must be a bunny rabbit!”

    The rabbit was much relieved to find his identity, and proceeded to return the favor to the snake. After feeling about the snake’s body for a few minutes, he asserted, “Well, you’re scaly, you’re slimy, you’ve got beady little eyes, you squirm and slither all the time, and you’ve got a forked tongue. I think you’re a lawyer!”
