Specter & Tort Reform

Tim Carney in the Washington Times on Arlen Specter’s tort-reform record: “As Mr. Bush tries to revive the economy in his second term, it’s not clear he can do that with Mr. Specter atop the committee that deals with tort reform. As Mr. Bush said during this campaign, “I don’t think you can be pro-small business and pro-trial lawyer at the same time.” There’s little doubt whose side Mr. Specter is on. There’s little hope for business if he’s chairman.”
