Yes on Prop. 46
An epidemic of medical mistakes is killing as many as 440,000 Americans a year. But politicians aren’t stepping up. The answer is Yes on Prop. 46 - the Pack Act on the Nov. 2014 ballot.


 

Bob Pack's children, Troy and Alana, were killed in an accident caused by a woman high on prescription drugs. The doctors responsible were never held accountable. Pack is sponsoring a ballot measure to crack down on prescription drug abuse by patients and doctors, and to hold doctors accountable for medical negligence. An epidemic of medical mistakes is killing as many as 440,000 Americans a year, making it the nation’s third leading cause of death. It’s like a 747 jetliner crashing every 10 hours. Unlike airline disasters, malpractice deaths don’t grab headlines. Politicians won’t tackle the problem. Help make a difference by voting yes on Prop. 46 - the Pack Act - on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot. It helps protect patients in three key ways:

  1. Mandate random drug testing of doctors (nearly 1 in 5 suffer substance abuse problems in their lifetimes).
  2. Require physicians use the state prescription database to curb “doctor shopping” by drug addicts.
  3. Raise the state’s malpractice cap for noneconomic damages to reflect 38 years of inflation.
Please step up to support this effort to better protect patients and ensure accountability.
