Tort Reform Playbook

Here is what purports to be talking points concerning tort reform for Republicans.

A sampling: “America has far too many frivolous lawsuits, absurd jury awards and outrageous plaintiffs’ lawyers. They wreck small businesses, damage the economy, punish consumers, deprive Americans of essential healthcare and cost all of us a lot of money. Republicans can never go wrong criticizing lawsuit abuse. For statistical purposes, you start with a potential pool of 81% of the electorate that believes ‘laws should be enacted to make it tougher for lawyers to file frivolous lawsuits.’ That’s pretty darn good.
So you start out with the American public on your side. But to keep them there, you need to talk about this issue using the right tone, context and language.”

It goes on and on, page after page.
