Maybe to the uneducated person, but someone who knows what they're talking about would realize tort reform does address that issue.Drunken Asparagus actually raises a very good point. But your argument didn't address the same issues.
No-one said it was the base, but an option that would actually lower the costs. The public option is NOT. Killing every american would ELIMINATE the problem, but it is not a good idea.Tort reform is a good part of any health reform package....but again, it cannot be the base because it simply is not going to make enough of an impact to make a difference without more.
