Corker Presses for Legal Reform

A press release from the Corker campaign describes speeches by the Republican candidate and former businessman calling for common sense medical liability reform. This is an important issue that differentiates Corker from his opponent, who has consistently voted against tort reform during his year's in Congress.

With important medical specialties such as obstetrics facing shortages, especially in rural areas, this remains a key issue on both the state and national level. It is not surprising that the need for legal reform is recognized by a man who has run a business and, thus, paid high liability insurance rates and faced the possibility of expensive, frivolous lawsuits. It is also perhaps not surprising that Ford does not recognize that need, as he has never done anything other than work in government.
