I agree with Gil422. The third party hotel folks are very upfront with their terms, and, on the websites I use, I am usually able to narrow down the choices of hotels so that I'm reasonably confident that I won't get a bad hotel once the decision is made. And, as Gill, said, even then, it's not over. (although I've never had to exercise that consumer right.)
As for Ms. Coulter's one page bill, I'd like to add another sentence: "All costs associated with lawsuits, (plaintiff, defendant, and court costs), shall be borne by the loser." That would stop frivolous lawsuits in a hurry and bring health care costs down even further!
