Luckily my parents health insurance covered everything after we hit our deductible (which happened on January 2nd, since my third hospitalization was on New Years Day), which was $4000. I can't imagine having no health insurance and then being diagnosed with a chronic illness. The GOP would tell those people they should've saved up money...fuck them.

so my mom's on chemo with no health insurance. thankfully (for once) we live in the bible belt so there's a lot of christian-based healthcare providers around here that provide cheap healthcare, so at least as of right now, unless the clinic decides she doesn't qualify, she's not having to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for chemotherapy that her oncologist said she'll be on for the rest of her life...because she can't afford the medicine that would nip it in the bud and take care of it quicker.

yet if either of my parents get sick, they have to go to the emergency room to get an antibiotic. okay. yes carson and all the other republicans, your healthcare plans are amazing. what we have now isn't even that great, so please tell me more about how it'll help anyone who isn't rich.
Just wanted to say, my best to both of you and your families and i hope both of your Mom's get better.

Jeb's on life support for sure. Fiorina and Cruz are dwindling as well. Rand is making a push. Up to 5th in the polls (was 11th a few weeks ago). 3rd in NH.

mere speculation on my part
but the Bushes could put pride aside and figure the best way to stop Trump would be to pull out and unite behind Rubio

This is my guess. If the republicans are smart, they'll stack everything behind Rubio. He's their best shot at winning.
Rubio as president/nominee and Paul Ryan as Speaker would be a major step forward for the party. Get some young blood in there, get the old, corrupt buffoons out. Next they need to take out McConnell.

In terms of age and nothing else.

Jeb's not on life support in terms of finances. There's a difference between the campaigns and the Super PAC. The Jeb Bush Super PAC is basically sitting on $100 million and has the money to get themselves all the way into the heart of the race in March. For Republicans, the money is often so slanted towards the Super PAC side of things that they're often cutting campaign staff while their Super PACs sit on massive war chests.

Sure, it does show that Bush is still in trouble, but he has a ton of money and is going to be around until at least the early spring. I mean, I guess there's the possibility that his Super PAC gets real desperate and blows through the money sooner, but the guy heading it has a long-term strategy that doesn't necessarily entail winning the first couple states.

They already are if you look at the latest Iowa polling with Ben Carson's surge. 3/4 of Iowa Republicans see Trump as having the largest ego in the field and 1/4 of Iowa Republicans think he should be the next candidate to drop out of the race. Trump's hot air balloon is already deflating and he'll have to consider leaving altogether by the time Iowa rolls around (which goes back to my theory that I can't actually see people wasting a day of their lives in a high school gym to caucus for the guy). He'll have a big decision to make about pulling out before Iowa and blaming the establishment and media or going through with it and being labeled "a loser"...I bet he chooses the former.

It's funny because Carson is just as much a bunch of hot air with no real expertise or experience. But at least Trump is a dynamic personality that excites people. If Carson were white, he wouldn't even be in the mix.

But I'd be ecstatic to see Carson win the nomination with his recent comments that he's against all abortions. We saw how that played out in red states in 2012 that went ahead and booted their Republican Senators that effectively told women that it's their responsibility to bring to term a rape baby. If Carson were the nominee, it's going to be a huge landslide against him that could even give the house back to the Dems.

That's the best situation for all of them if Trump or Carson manages to start winning some states a few months from now...the longer they take to get behind a mainstream candidate like Rubio or Bush, the better the chances of Trump or Carson narrowly winning the nomination in an extremely divided field.

The common sense is that as more people drop out, the more likely voters get behind an establishment candidate as they did with Romney four years ago (which is why Romney is still a hypothetical 2016 nominee). This leaves Trump with no chance of winning once there's only one or two other major challengers remaining as he's despised by so much of the party's members that he's basically capped at 40% of the vote in a given state, tops.

I'd say Rubio vs. Clinton. Rubio begins to emerge as the one mainstream alternative to these "populist" candidacies and handily claims the nomination.

There's just no way there's not a 3rd person at the table, if it's Trump.
