The vicious cycle of children getting harmed by vaccines, suing the mfgr, government compensation, taxes being raised... Should the government compensate or get more involved and put on caps to lawsuits?
"THE THREAT to our vaccine supply in this country is a real one," read a congressional report from the mid-1980s.
At the time, manufacturers warned that they could be forced to suspend vaccine production because of costly lawsuits filed by families who believed their children had been injured by inoculations. Congress was also concerned that not every case involving an injured child was being heard, in part because lawyers would often take only the cases they believed would yield big judgments.
