Why Is Republican Steve King Trying to Nationalize Tort Law?

Many Republicans all around the nation have long been champions of tort reform.  Republicans in states like Texas have enacted it – and achieved the results its proponents promised.

Whether or not you favor tort reform of any sort – we should all recognize that it is not a federal government issue.  Republicans especially – conservatives even more so – should understand the complete lack of any Constitutional imperative to have the federal government address tort reform.

Since the Constitution does not expressly empower The Feds on tort reform – the Ninth and Tenth Amendments mandate that it not be addressed by The Feds.

Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King is a stalwart conservative, and a champion on many important federal issues.  Tort reform shouldn’t be one of them.  His tort reform bill – H.R. 1215: Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017 – can be in all fifty statehouses, should you favor tort reform.

Per the Constitution – it does not belong in the United States Congress.
