Tort reform is even more minor than taxing the wealthy, but have at it, it won;t make a dent.

I wouldn't say that. Medical schools now bring lawyers in to brief the students on what the legal environment is should they screw up. That scares sufficient new doctors into ordering defensive tests.

And how did we get from the best health care system in the world, to one where we spend too much and don;t get the best outcome?

They did cite the infant mortality statistic which is bu11$hit. Other countries that supposedly rank ahead of us don't count preemies and rig their data in other ways.
