Rep. Steve King: Magna Carta wasn’t concerned with medical malpractice claims

Steve KingI thought the gentleman from Pennsylvania’s look at HR 1215 was a really deft way to focus on this and speak about the Magna Carta, but there wasn’t anybody back in old England in that time that had any shot at filing a liability claim, let alone receiving a frivolous claim that would make one individual vastly wealthy at the expense of a lot of other folks.

So this is something that has accumulated over the last 502 years since the Magna Carta was signed.

—Rep. Steve King (R–IA)

Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017, House Floor, June 28, 2017
