Right wingers have something that gums up the works every time they try to do something. It's called faith. For them faith always trumps science, data, and facts.
Example: Tort reform
The right wing believes on faith that malpractice premiums are driven by huge overpayments in malpractice cases and therefore we need to limit what a person can be awarded
They believe this despite the facts on the table.
There are states that enacted tort reform 40 years ago and severely restrict payouts in malpractice claims. Colorado for example. There are other state that have no such limits.
Tort reform proponents had promised benefits such as a decrease in defensive medicine, lower malpractice insurance premiums and an end to "out-of-control" jury verdicts. So did tort reform deliver?
A major study published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine confirms what multiple other studies have shown: tort reform has had no impact on defensive medicine. There has also been little impact on malpractice insurance premiums. Meanwhile, tort reform has caused actual harm by preventing injured people from obtaining justice, and delaying actual reforms, such as patient safety initiatives, that could save lives.
