“The U.S. Chamber supports health courts and other medical liability reforms that ensure fair damage awards”

Is this just smoke and mirrors? If the U.S. Chamber supports “fair damage awards” then why to they continue to NOT support the Medical Device Safety Act of 2009 preventing anyone from going to court to determine if a person is entitled to “fair damage awards” or to hold a company accountable for there actions if their was gross negligence?

Have we all forgotten the words of the Pledge of Allegiance? So we want “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty” but not “justice for all.”

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands: one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

This pledge is something that I said everyday in school. It had value to society or I would not have had to repeat those words. I was not given the choice of which words I repeated.

Do those words have any value to society, do they mean something, are they the foundation of this country?

Is it “justice for all” with the deepest pockets. Is justice for sale? Is the U.S. Chamber about a fair fight or only when it benefits business.

We must remember the primary objective of the Chamber of Commerce, to promote commerce.

“To advance human progress through an economic, political and social system based on individual freedom, incentive, initiative, opportunity, and responsibility.”

What are the obligations of corporations? Are corporations not obligated to be responsible as much so as individuals?

Are corporations an ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility?

Does not equality of opportunity mean equity of responsibility?

Or is the Chamber of Commerce like a baby, “A load noise at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other”?

“Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it. “
-Shaw, George Bernard

“The liability for an act and the obligation to repair any damage caused by that act; in criminal law, a person’s mental capacity to understand and answer in court for her or his actions; guilt.”

Without the Medical Device Safety Act of 2009 how is a corporation to be held accountable for their actions?
