Good Plan, Bro

Cunning, really.
Paul's solution: Persuade advocates to stop just clamoring for more funding and start thinking about efficiency. "I think it’s important that all the advocates for disability realize that it’s in their best interest to make sure that people who are disabled are receiving money," he said. "So, there’s a lot of reforms that we’ve talked about–having more certainty in annual exams, having the exams done by doctors who have not seen the patient and can be objective in confirming the disability. There’s a lot of reform we can do, and the key is getting the advocates involved."

Disability benefits are tiny, and it is really difficult to actually qualify. But, yeah, disability advocates should advocate for spending a lot of money to do even more screening because the disabled poor don't have enough problems.
