There's a huge difference. Tort reform would only require laws on the book ---
the legal system would then be its own regulatory body. No need for some huge
third-party bureaucracy to oversee the process.

What the hell is the matter with you, Geege? Why in the world are you such an
apologist for the status quo? Let's see if I understand your position

  * tort reform is unnecessary, and a bad thing
  * our existing tax system is appropriate and good
  * regulation is a good thing as-is, and well-executed
  * bureaucracies as-is are
     * right-sized
     * efficient
     * effective
     * optimally expensive
  * gov't from afar is good and more appropriate than local gov't
  * we all need to be protected from ourselves
  * paternal government is benign and appropriate
  * everyone's interests are currently represented fairly
  * all evil in the world adheres to rich corps and individuals
  * anyone who disagrees must favor fascism / dictatorship

Is that about right? You're one wacky chick, Geege.

Love ya, babesy.
