    And this, the republican always touting the "need" for "tort reform":

    When Heimeshoff started working for Walmart, she signed a contract saying that if she were ever denied disability benefits, she could only sue the company for wrongful denial of benefits if she did so within three years of filing her disability claim.

     But the US government and consumer lawyers say that Walmart's contract is bunk, because established law stipulates that the clock doesn't start ticking on those three years until an employee's claim for benefits is improperly denied.

    So near to the trick republicans pulled out of their playbook with the Lilly Ledbetter law suit  

    The kind of reform crooks do - thieving plain and simple
