CAAA: Stupid Bragging

  • State: California

A few years ago, the California Workers’ Compensation Institute bragged to NPR about how well California’s work comp system was working. 

The evidence? Probably not something to brag about.

“Only” 8% of medical treatment denials for injured workers needed to be overturned. The CWCI called it “progress.”  


Ask those 10,000-plus injured California workers how they feel about medical care denied for months.

What if the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention bragged that “only” 16 out of every 1,000 Americans had cancer? Did America win the war on cancer?

What would the mainstream media haters say after the Washington Post reported that “only” 11 out of every 1,000 African-American babies were dying as infants?

How about this for "progress"?

Forbes reports that although moms in America are still making only 74 cents for every $1 a man makes doing the same work, women as a whole are up to 83 cents for every dollar a man makes.

Break out the champagne!
