John Dingell Explains Why ObamaCare Doesn't Include Tort Reform

The Dems would rein in the insane excesses of ambulance-chasing vampires like John Edwards — a major factor in rising healthcare costs — except they just don't have the time, as antediluvian Congresscommie John Dingell (D-MI) explains:

It looks like the folks aren't buying Dingleberry's explanation. The real reason there will be no tort reform is that Democrats are the party of parasites, bought and paid for by trial lawyers.

Dingleberry played off this embarrassing scene by telling his allies in the media that the town hall meeting had been infiltrated by opponents — i.e., citizens who disagree with the policies he's been ramming down their throats. This creature has been around long enough to have witnessed the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, yet the concept of a government that derives its powers from the consent of the governed is beyond his comprehension.
