Of course you're right, about trial lawyers; they're ruining our country. But the fact is that they are in the pocket of the Left just as much as the public unions are. This is why they won't allow 'loser pays' or tort reform, etc. Did you know that 80% of tests done by doctors are deemed unnecessary by most doctors, but they do them anyway for litigation reasons? Trial lawyers, public unions, big business, these are all and have been terribly bad; but only because of the their being in cahoots with big government. The Left (Dems) are overwhelmingly responsible for all of this. That is the truth.
