“We have public policies that force medical care on people who don't want it. They are old, sick, in pain, and living a life that is not what it should be. I am in favor of making it easier for them to decide they don't want more care. It saves tens of billions of dollars and, I think, accommodates people’s wishes,” he said.
He also said he was in favor of increasing the co-pay on Medicare payments with income; taxing Social Security benefits for people who reach a certain level of income and recycling that money back into the Social Security system; and making hundreds of billions of dollars of cuts to the defense budget.
