Re: “Tort 'reform' — a battle is brewing

The whole philosophy of tort reform is misleading. Citizens have been trained to believe that frivolous lawsuits are the reason health care is failing, consumer goods are expensive and insurance rates are higher. The reality, which can be discovered with a minimal amount of effort, is that true frivolous lawsuits don't make it very far in the system and don't begin to account for the sharp increases in cost and decline in quality.

All one has to do is look at the increasing profit margins of the large insurers and corporations pushing tort reform to understand they aren't struggling for survival due to lawsuits, as they want us to believe. They are, in fact, thriving.

Every state that has passed serious tort reform has seen insurance rates and price indexes for consumers continue to rise, while profit margins increase for corporations.
