    Oh good- repeal workers comp law and we can return to the traditional 19th century Master-Servant Tort law that existed before Workers comp law was universally adopted at the beginning of the 20th century.

    So an assembly line worker sustains a back injury on the job that leaves him permanently partially disabled. Absent Workers comp law (since we all voted to repeal it) the only recourse the injured worker has is to sue his employer for tort negligence.

    Now, since we no longer have Workers comp., just imagine: a severely injured worker is going to go up against a multi-national corporation for some sort of recompense. Hardly a successful scenario for the poor worker.

    In all likelihood the multi-national corporation would counter sue its employee for damages the corporation suffered from the worker's lost productivity, and with all their battalions of house attorneys would in court prevail!

    Be careful what you wish for- you might just get it!

    Your point is a valid one indeed. The MAJORITY of Americas' Injured Workers' really do not have the slightest idea of what's on the horizon, OR on the Political agenda just waiting for them.

    Bush or Kerry. NO difference.

    Been in the "works" for a real long time!

    Doing away with work comp laws would put even the smallest injury into the civil court system. It'd take forever to even get an aspirin out of them.
    It'd make it so easy for employers; they wouldn't even have to deny anything; they could just sit and wait for years before anything could be decided.
    This probably seems logical to those that think creating the biggest catastrophe possible is the best way to be heard. But what a terrible price to make others pay just so they can make their point.
    It's not a constructive approach to improving things and is so obviously wrong-headed that nobody with any clout will give it the "time of day."
