Rep. Ron Paul has been an opponent against the Democrat’s plan to reform health care. Paul believes that programs like Medicaid, Medicaid, and Veteran’s care could be better provided by private insurance. “It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a total failure to run anything by a bureaucracy, it always costs more and the services are always less favorable,” Paul told CNN’s Kiran Chetry.
“I would like to see with the government out completely because that would be a much better system,” said Paul. But he knows the reality is that government will continue to provide some health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid. “You don’t want to cut under these [economic] conditions medical care from poor people who have been dependent or the elderly. I would cut from overseas spending I would cut from these trillions and trillions of dollars that we have spent over the years and bring our troops home so that we can finance it.”

"We saw an opportunity to use Android to provide people with timely, helpful earthquake information when they search, as well as a few seconds warning to get themselves and their loved ones to safety if needed," principal software engineer Marc Stogaitis said in a blog post.
