I've been saying this for years. You want tort reform? Devise a more equitable social welfare system. You want medical malpractice reform? Socialize it. Easy-peasy. I suppose another alternative is just to throw accident victims out on the street: no doubt Orin Hatch and his ilk would have no qualms about stepping over legless beggars in the gutter.
"Tort reform" is just picking a soft target to blame things on, the same kind of laziness that got us mandatory sentencing in criminal law. You get to point to someone else and say, "his fault", instead of coming up with actual thought-out thoughts.
