Happy Festivus! Don't Fall for Deceptive Campaign Practices

Yes, it's the Festivus for the Rest of Us. Dancing around the pole, airing of grievances and feats of strength. I have grievances. Campaigns that lie and cheat; organizations that pretend to be one thing and really another. We are not fooled, Californians Aligned for Patient Protection (CAPP). Really your name should be Corporations Against Patient Protection and that's what you are, an industry group supporting  the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act of 1975 (MICRA), the law that caps pain and suffering damages for patients injured by physicians' malpractice at  $250,000.

Now, I see this nefarious group is congratulating our Assemblymember Marc Levine  for protecting patients. This means he supports CAPP and that's not good for Californians.

Don't fall for deceptive campaign practices, starting early this season.

Happy Festivus everyone!
