Taxing lawyers and doctors

This note, from RiskProf is about tacing lawyers and doctors to help pay for insurance. Seems as if the insurance companies are the only winners here, doesn't it? The costs are just being spread across a wider group of people. Doesn't stop the progress of frivolus malpractice lawsuits or reduce the systemic costs:

NJ is taxing lawyers $75 per capita to contribute to a med mal insurance
assistance funds which will be used to subsidize med mal premiums.
Employers are also paying $3 per employee and medical professionals are
also being subject to a $75 per capita tax.

Best is reporting that a NJ trial court has denied a temporary
injunction requested by the NJ bar association.
