Congress has…a lot to do.
We still desperately need to undo the train wreck that is Obamacare.
We still desperately need to rewrite and simplify the tax code – and eliminate or drastically cut the many taxes and their rates.
We still desperately need to repeal the bank-killing horror show that is Dodd-Frank.
We should finally restore regular order – and actually go through the full budget writing process. Oh – and we should dramatically reduce what that budget spends.
That’s plenty – but there’s even more.
But what absolutely does not belong on this very long list – is nationalizing tort reform.
It’s unconstitutional – because the Constitution doesn’t mention it, so it’s up to the states.
It’s also unconstituional – because it is Legislative Branch overreach into the purview of the Judicial Branch.
And given how often the Judicial overreaches into the Legislative – you would think the Legislative would know better.
Congress has a whole lot of actual, actually pertinent and germane stuff on which to work.
Let’s leave this other stuff out.
