120. Tucker Carlson? Is that you?
Whether you know it or not, you're parroting Republican talking points from the '04 campaign.

Medical malpractice cases are almost always taken on a contingency basis. The attorney fronts the cost of the case, including hiring all the experts, staff, court costs, etc. The fee is substantial because the attorney bears the risk, if he loses, of making nothing on the case. Lower the contingency fees, and many cases won't be taken by attorneys, preventing individuals from having good representation and thus meaningful access to the court system.

You know, Dick Cheney's a big fan of tort reform too. That ought to give you pause about your position.
