Wingnuts Are Sad that Progressives Don’t Take Their Nonsense Seriously
But just to take one example, the total costs of all malpractice suits in the U.S. — frivolous or not — is about one half of one percent of our health-care costs. So why should I view the argument that tort reform is a key component of getting out-of-control health-care costs under control with anything but scorn?
Or look at the so-called “Death tax.” Conservatives have been arguing for years that it’s killing family farms, but they have never been able to find a single example of a family who actually lost a farm because of the inheritance tax. I look down my nose at those making the argument not because I’m some ivory-tower elitist, but because I don’t respect liars.
