    This Senator is clearly being paid off by the Insurance companies to pass legislation to benefit the insurance companies. These insurance companies are attempting to get this misguided senator to change the current DBA laws that is clearly broken to help the insurance companies even more.

    Not a problem Senator.. keep going in that Direction.. but he is a politician.. as these Class actions continue the truth will come out.. Politicians are scum.. I know because we protected them. So as the bad press comes out they will distance themselves from this horrible legislation he is attempting to pass.

    “in a dispute concerning the facts in a claim brought under this Act, the facts are not to be given a broad liberal construction in favor of the employee or of the employer, and the laws pertaining to a claim brought under this Act are to be construed in accordance with the basic principles of statutory construction and not liberally in favor of either the employee or employer;”

    Considering how ridiculous the “evidence” used to deny my case was, the law as it is written now was ignored and was “liberally construed” in favor of the insurance company! This BULLSHIT that this “politician (said with a scowl)” has written is nothing more than a way to screw us even more out of hard earned benefits paid for with our blood, sweat, and yes tears.

    How many of these people have ever done an honest days labor in their lives?

    How can they get away with this?
