The Left, Tort Reform, and Universal Healthcare

Regardless if you are from the right or the left of the political spectrum - you should support tort reform, especially tort reform on medical malpratice. It puzzles me a great deal that the Left are adamantly opposed to tort reform.
If you are on the Right, like me, you support privatization of health care. If you are on the Left, you support universal healthcare. But neither goal can be achieved without reducing the cost of healthcare. I think both sides agree that the current price of healthcare is too high. It is too high for a person to buy health insurance on his own. And it would bankrupt the government if we decide to nationalized healthcare.
One factor that makes heathcare so expensive is the high cost of malpractice insurance to healthcare provider. And I do not buy into the argument (by attorney lobbyist, of all people) that there are no frivolous lawsuits. Stella Liebeck v. McDonald's Corp is not as rare as they claimed. Both my brother and I had been partied to frivilous lawsuit.
The Right, by supporting tort reform, shows that they are serious about keeping healthcare in the private sector. If the Left is truly serious about universal healthcare, they should be supporting tort reform. Their current position only reveals that they are in the pocket of trial lawyers, and all the talks of universal healthcare is mere political rhetoric, not to be taken seriously.

Tort reform is definitely on the back burner since Cheney managed to put a bit of birdshot into his hunting companion...

Seriously, though, these lawyers pay biiig money to lobby against any change. Kerry's v.p. running mate made his millions as a tort reform lawyer. Have you ever talked to one for a few moments? It makes you understand right away why htey're referred to as "sharks."

Creepy people.

You are right that everybody should be against outrageous medical malpractice suits. These benefit nobody except the lawyers who have become unbelievably rich by searching around for doctors to sue, because medicine is, by its very nature, full of risks.

I won't say that "the Left" supports tort reform. But the Democrats do. And surprise! Trial lawyers are the second biggest contributors to the Democrat Party. (Just after teachers' unions.)

Trial lawyers are parasites under normal circumstances. But with a major political party in their pocket, they harm our country.
