83,000 Heart Attacks? The Avandia Question for the Health Care Summit

Email Email Print

According to an AP report of a U.S. Senate study of the drug Avandia, the medicine caused 83,000 heart attacks from 1999 to 2007.

When I posted on this story yesterday, the scale of the potential number of claims against GlaxoSmithKline had not been revealed.

Republicans at this week’s “summit” on health care ought to ask the president, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid how the Obamacare proposals will distribute the costs of this soon-to-arrive avalanche of Avandia litigation, and how single payer addresses any aspect of the massive costs associated with mass tort litigation.
