Ross Perot, founder and likely candidate of the Reform Party
In his book Intensive Care: We Must Save Medicare and Medicaid Now, Perot advocates significant reductions in the rate of growth in Medicare spending. Among the changes he promotes are increasing the beneficiary share of Medicare costs and increasing the eligibility age by three years. Generally, Perot's plan would allow seniors to choose between many of the same managed-care options as the GOP and White House plans. Perot also supports allowing seniors to move into medical savings accounts, a proposal supported by the GOP but loathed by the Clinton administration.In his own words:
"Rather than taking a huge first step with a new untested system, wouldn't it make sense to pilot test a number of proposals? The danger of scrapping an old system of any kind is that a new system may not be any better."
