Notable Quote: WSJ on H.R. 3, Biden & Pelosi's Dangerous Healthcare Bill

In this week's Liberty Update we highlight the potentially catastrophic threat of H.R. 3, the healthcare and drug price control bill that Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are attempting to rush through Congress.  The Wall Street Journal helpfully offers further insight this morning on how H.R. 3 would threaten lifesaving U.S. pharmaceutical innovation and leadership, including on things like the Covid vaccines:

Companies that refuse the government’s price must pay a 95% excise tax on all revenue they generate from that drug in the U.S.  They’d also have to offer the government price to private insurers.  There’s no “negotiation” when a gun is pointed at your head.  A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association estimates that drug spending in the U.S. would…[more]

A Kansas City Royals fan who was injured when an aluminum wrapped hot dog was thrown by the Royals team mascot Slugerrr has sued the team.

The Missouri Supreme Court is reviewing a lawsuit filed by John Coomer, of Overland Park, Kansas.  Coomer, who was hit in the eye with the hot dog and suffered a detached retina, underwent two surgeries to repair the damage, at the cost of $4,800 in medical expenses.  Coomer is suing for more than $20,000.

The court will have to decide whether Coomer's lawsuit falls under the "baseball rule," which protects organizations from being sued for fan injuries at games.  More particularly, the court will first decide whether the actions of the mascot fall under the umbrella of what the "baseball rule" covers.

“If a jury finds that the activity at issue is an inherent and unavoidable risk, the Royals owe no duty to their spectators,” Robert Tormohlen, Coomer’s attorney, said. “No case has extended the no-duty rule to the activities of a mascot.”
