Good video on the BS that is tort reform

Here’s an 8 minute video on YouTube exposing some of the truths about the tort reform movement… no huge new ground here, but if you’re out of the loop, some of the highlights are:

1. The US Chamber of Commerce and the Tobacco Companies were responsible for the tort reform movement;

2. The McDonalds coffee case was more serious than people knew (ie the coffee was 180 degrees, McDonalds knew it would scald people, the woman needed a hospital stay and skin grafts, and after an appeal she only got a small settlement).

It also briefly discusses one of my favorite people… the DC pants idiot. Enjoy!
