    Medicaid has become a most expensive component of the Social Security program.

    The government may wish to consider having Medicaid beneficiaries relinquish the ability to sue physicians for malpractice, but instead to have such claims settled by a system similar to that used in current Worker's Compensation programs.

    This would result in speedier assistance to the claimants and should also result in lower cost malpractice insurance for physicians treating Medicaid patients. Perhaps this would also reduce the reluctance of physicians to treat Medicare patients.

    Yes, because putting the financial responsibility on those senior who are actually ON Medicare...

    is not 'dismantling' Meidicare.

    Back to the topic, the GOP 'residential hopefuls' are no such thing. They will not actively run in 2012. If they did, you would see them trying to debate Obama NOW!

    Not 'creating a panel to see the viability of running for president.'

    Sarah Palin played this card first, after loosing her Vice Presidental bid and after quiting her 1st term as Gov. of Alaska.

    People pay big bucks if they think you a 'winner.'

    And yet, no official mention of Palin runnig for president, is there?

    x3 years after her defeat with McCain...and only 1yr left until the 2012 elections this woman, like so many others who claim, in word only, to run for president...

    probably laugh their way to the bank.

    And it's at your expense.

    Rep Paul is a new, great reformer. He is not "deforming and dismantling" these social programs, he is making them viable programs going forward. If America goes bankrupt, all these programs will be destroyed.
    The great reformation has begun. Too bad it became necessary, but with common sense and work we can overcome the disgusting spending spree that has occured for a generation.
