Why John DeFrancisco needs to go.
John DeFrancicso (R – Syracuse) needs to go. Recently he proposed a law that would repeal an existing law and increase medical malpractice fees for lawyers to 33%. (Current law states 30% of the first $250,000 , 25% on the next $250,000 and 10% over $1.25 million.) Other Republicans and Gov. Cuomo are attempting to cap these lawyer fees at $250,000.
Maybe DeFrancisco deserves the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he’s just trying to help out the little malpractice lawyer. Afterall, some of the biggest employers of John’s constituents happen to be medical institutions who would suffer greatly under this new law. Some estimates say the additional cost in premiums alone would be over $600 million dollars.
Or maybe he’s just trying to help himself and his son.
That’s right.. it’s no coincidence that his son is a partner in a Syracuse, NY law firm that specializes in medical malpractice lawsuits and personal injury. Senator DeFrancisco is also counsel to his son’s law firm. Talk about lining your own pockets..
So it looks like we have a lawyer posing as a public servant passing laws to benefit himself and his family. That is why John DeFrancisco needs to go!
