    No, just another big government meddler like all the rest. All except for Ron Paul of course.

    Tort Reform = Strip the people of civil liberty to trial by jury and install frivolous state mandate.

    Corporate liberalism is destroying this country.

    Ignorant rightist nonsense.

    Introducing ‘competition’ into healthcare will do little or nothing to reduce costs. The difference among various premiums won’t be great enough to create real affordability; if you can’t afford a $1500 per month premium, you’re not going to be able to afford one for $1350 per month after ‘shopping around,’ either.

    Another idiotic rightist myth, ‘tort reform’ will do nothing to reduce overall healthcare costs and could actually increase the risk of medical accidents:

    Bachmann is your classic conservative: all dogma, no facts or common sense.

    LOL, she's finished, she just doesn't know it yet. She'll drop out after Iowa.

    Federal laws that strip states of the ability to regulate insurance products sold within their borders would seem to be the opposite of what Paul claims to stand for. And it's not as though he isn't suggesting the use of tax credits and deductions and circumstantial payroll tax exemptions as part of his health care agenda.

    If you think Paul is a big government guy, I'd love to see your candidate.

    That is not socialism, it is using the tax code to manipulate social policy. They are equally despicable but not equivalent.
