I was surprised that during the Presidential campaign, Dubya didn’t talk more about tort reform, because when he ran for governor in Texas, it was a huge part of his platform. There’s little doubt in my mind that even though it wasn’t a big part of his campaign, it will be a big part of his legislative agenda — his corporate patrons would absolutely love nationwide tort reform. For those of you not from Texas, “tort reform” is code for “no longer holding corporations and other monied interests liable for their actions.”
