I didn’t realize the death toll was so high for misread prescriptions. Why has this been acceptable until now would be a good question to ask. I don’t recall this being part of Hillary’s health care plan.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Longtime political foes Newt Gingrich and Hillary Rodham Clinton joined cheerfully Wednesday to promote legislation on health care changes, joking that some might view it as a sign of a soon-to-come doomsday.
-snip-
Standing next to the senator Wednesday, Gingrich argued that both parties should agree to move health care records from the realm of scribbled doctors' notes to electronic record-keeping.
Proponents of the measure being offered in the House by Reps. Tim Murphy, R-Pa. and Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., say the bill would greatly reduce the 98,000 estimated U.S. deaths a year caused by preventable medical errors such as misreading a prescription.

Newt Gingrich and Hillary Clinton - can you imagine what the children would look like? The more that I think about it, they might make a cute couple.
