This debate is becoming interesting, and Romney is not winning the debate Outkast. He is so full of himself its not even funny. RP = real solutions, no BS...


RP has no solutions.

His solutions are to do nothing...that isn't a solution.


Romney will get a bump in the polls after this debate and will most likely win Florida....because he is winning this debate. Remember...Romney isn't debating Ron Paul...he is debating Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich and his
long winded speaking
is tiresome no wonder he
he has so much time
he drags out his words
like an old drunk.
Paul is being treated pretty fairly
he is doing a superb job.
right behind Romney in this debate. Still could
have a little extra time it would be
nice to hear from him more.
Romney is just sweeping the floor
with Gingrich. Romney is beating him
right now even though the time does
not agree because Newt really knows how to
*milk the clock* so to speak.
Second break 9:16 EST. GOP Debate times 1/26/2012 jack. fl.
approx
1.santorum 11:56
2.gingrich 15:58

I am beginning to believe that we as Americans are lazy,
we argue about who can we vote for, to solve or problems,
we do not want to solve them.
We want to elect one man, and if he fails blame it on him.
The once greatest nation now places all responsibility on one mans shoulders.

Paul/Gingrich alliance in the near future?


Looks like that is what Newt is aiming for although I do remember him saying he would not vote for Paul and Paul said it right back to him.

People always have the right to change their mind, don't they?

In my opinion he is getting beat up by Santorum, and his blows on Gringrich will not stick well. I think Santorum is getting the crowd going a lot better.

This is just my opinion.

When you say Govt. should control healthcare you do realize that Insurance Companies are a lobbying force to be reckoned with right?

the market = decentralization
Govt. getting involved = cronyism to lobbying power equating to them getting rich and many regulatory bodies getting cronies as head of these bodies and then because of regulation smaller COMPETING businesses cannot endure the costs

Ron Paul's solution to healthcare ........Let the Private Sector make it more affordable by creating an Enviorment where Competition amoung different Health Insurance Carriers would Lower the overall Costs of Care that Goverment Intervention has today totally Corrupted by Over Regulations and Taxes that have led to it's present Inflated Costs to Consumers .

Romney's wife did not look too happy when he mentioned M.S. and breast cancer. Her face filled with blood.

Not sure what that means, or maybe its the big screen here....

I think RP knows that he is bound by the constitution so as to not corrupt the true intent. Since the constitution does not allow for federal intervention in most of the current issues, he is bound to let the states and local communities to govern themselves.

Pretty simple. Following the rules!

Two things that would lower healthcare in a free market; being able to buy insurance across state lines and tort reform. A loser pays system will do away with frivolous lawsuits. This will lower doctor's malpractice ins there by lowering healthcare costs.

How easy is it to find a family doctor that accepts new patients?


Not hard at all...and I'm talking about doctors from a top tier hospitals in Chicago.


Because of that how crowded is the emergency room?
How easy is it to find a specialist?

So hard to find a specialist until it's it's too late then govt.(you) pays for care

If you can't see the lack of logic there then I don't know what to say


Emergency rooms will always be crowded...always have been, always will be.

And if you are in NEED of a specialist...it's not that hard to find one.

Where the hell do you live...you are painting a picture that I just don't see.

The problem isn't the availability of healthcare...it is there...the problem is the cost and the abuse by insurance companies.

In Ron Paul's plan of just doing nothing and letting the "market" handle it....is handing it over to the insurance companies to do whatever the hell they want to do.

But I guess they will just do the right thing...right? Because Ron Paul says so

I think it is safe to say that Romney may be toast after this, and the MSM will make it a Santorum-Gingrich battle, all while continuing to dismiss RP.

Romney is not doing so well.


Huh???

Romney is winning this debate...they try and try on healthcare against him and always fail.


Are we even watching the same Debate?

Romney is not "winning" this debate. He is making a good showing, but he is not really standing out on any issue for the exception of attacks on Newt. He is not even standing out on the issues.

Newt is on the ropes tonight. A lot of foot in mouth .

Santorum thus far also has made a solid showing.

Paul I think has made the strongest showing of all the Candidates, but I also think he has let some opportunities pass him by.

Our healthcare problems will only get better when we see that it is morally wrong to profit off of it. Insurance in healthcare is as damaging as govt. in healthcare.
