Whoa...I disagree completely that Ron Paul nailed that question.


His answer was for to churches to take care of the people with no insurance



He side stepped the question IMO.


He didn't say anything about churches taking care of people. He gave an example of something that happened.

I think she needs to make that clear...cause I'm not so sure.


"Michelle...what is your solution for the wars in the middle east? Repeal Obamacare?"


She is a one issue candidate...she will drop out soon methinks.

"How to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon."

Ron Paul: don't do anything and declare victory



Of course he'll say it more eloquently than that.

Wasn't it shown (on this site I believe) that almost none of those polls were open polls? But even taking that into account I see Dr. Paul a full 3 points ahead of Bachmann, but I seem to be noticing her fielding many more questions than Dr. Paul.

Didn't Bachmann say that working teens shouldn't get paid, and should instead have to pay the company they are employed at for the CHANCE to be working there?

Uh no, he said back then churches would step up to it and that the hospitals never turned patients away. If he was given more time to speak he would continue on to say how he and other physicians used to personally treat patients for low cost or free based on their current financial situation. They did all this BEFORE the complex insurance industry came into play.

He owned the question, 100% and the audience loved it.

He said that hospitals have gotten away from the practice of accepting people without insurance because all-around healthcare costs have gone through the roof. With special licensing, lack of competition, inflation, and malpractice, cost of medicine and the pharmaceutical industry, and restrictions on alternative medicine. Also churches used to take care of people who had no insurance.

If we were to restore this economy back to its full potential not only would more people be able to afford care and medicine, but there would also be less of an incentive for hospitals to turn people away because costs will be down. Also we could have public health clinics set up for the uninsured. Not everything is end-all be all, and you are largely responsible for taking care of yourself to the best of your ability, with what you have control over. The things you cannot control, obviously you will be given aid, and in a robust economy where healthcare prices are down, you can bet that we would find ways to take care of our poor, sick and dieing.

He did...re-watch it.

He sidestepped the question...then realized he needed to say something because you can't just let a guy die in that hypothetical. So he said that churches or charities should take care of him.

Yeah...Mr Paul...that used to work when the country was small and healthcare wasn't a "business"...it doesn't work anymore. In today's society, you need a government safety net.

Sorry Ron Paul...you failed hard on that question.

Those types of people are easily swayed. Who will they really vote for? Not a republican, and I don't think they are very happy with Obama, so it could be that people just flock to Ron Paul because he's the only possibility. I'm not saying this will definitely happen but if people are so fickle they don't even care about politics, there's always a chance they will choose right by accident. A broken clock is still right two times a day.

Then he didn't give an answer for the CURRENT SITUATION.

He dodged the question...because he couldn't just say that the guy with no insurance should just die.

Remember the Republican health care plan???

Don't get sick, if you do get sick, die quickly.


That seems to be Ron Paul's solution.

OH NO...Perry gave illegals tuition help.

He is so done...Republicans don't like illegals.


I'm almost ashamed to say that I agree with Rick Perry on something.

I don't know what that means.

Like a Mexican zesty salas at TGI Fridays or something? (Shrug)

Dosent seem like the audience cared much for Perrys in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.

Score 1 for Santorum for pointing that out
