    Way to go!

    Utah is proving once again that we don't need the Feds to take care of us. We're actually pretty good at managing things here ourselves. I'm proud to be a Utahn today.

    These are the kind of things we need to fund. They have more than earned their pay.

    Good work. Now, let's check a bit further and catch the folks who are illegally using Medicaid and that will save even more.

    But, a much larger potential saving of tax dollars will come from aggressively screening the people on "disability" in the Social Security system. The criteria are too lax, the investigations too shallow, the lawyers too eager, and some people too dishonest to keep recipients limited to those truly disabled.
