Why don't they talk about tort reform?

Tort reform is somewhat of a red herring. It draws attention away from the real issues that plague the health systems in the United States. Very few people get huge awards from malpractice by doctors. The bars already in place prevent frivolous suits and make a malpractice suit difficult to file without a solid cause of action, and malpractice charges are expensive to prove. "Tort reform" is fundamentally a way to protect doctors and insurance companies from reforming. More attention should be paid to the unreasonably high premiums charged by insurance companies not to taking away the individual's right to just compensation when doctor has caused serious or fatal damage by malpractice.
