Is this the Republican Plan for health care. Just put a Band Aid on it, and maybe it will go away.
Beats a 1 trillion dollar red hot poker up my ass.

That's Ron Paul plan, not the Republicans. I don't even see any co-sponsors from any other Republicans.
Ron Paul is a Republican so it's a Republican plan.
If Ron Paul is a Republican then how come he didn't get the nomination from his party? He easily had the best ideas out of the lot of candidates. Is it maybe because nationally, his ideas don't exactly jive with Republicans?
I know you're a Libertarian by the way Kevin, so I know you're not trying to defend the GOP here or something.
He's a Republican,I voted for him during the primary as well as in November, he was on the Louisiana ballot.
Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee didn't get the nomination from the Republican Party either, but they're still members of the party. I agree that he had the best ideas and I agree that his ideas don't jive with a lot of Republicans, but he is still a member of the party. The Republican Party isn't just the party of conservatives, there are plenty of Libertarians that are Republicans as well.
Technically he wasn't "running" as a Republican for the general election in Louisiana, he was the candidate of the Louisiana Taxpayers Party. Though he also wasn't technically running at all, it was simply supporters that took their own initiative and added him to the ballot.
To complain about the Democratic plans?
