2012 Ron Paul Campaign News: Comfortably Funded & Medicare Assurance
We recently wrote an article about Ron Paul the Republican Texan congressman where we detailed how he was staying true to his principles and asked readers if they would vote for him. The response to this was overwhelmingly positive and made it quite clear that many of you would vote for him. Today we have more news about Ron Paul, about his campaign fund and also his reassurance about Medicare.
First off it seems that Ron Paul’s campaign will be comfortably funded as a campaign spokesman told yesterday about well over $5 million in fundraising being reached for the third quarter. That should certainly be more than adequate for funding Paul’s presidential race in the next few months. Patricia Zengerle over on Reuters tells how this amount may be quite a lot less than fundraising reached for figures such as Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, but it does show consistent report for Paul in his bid to become president.
We told how recent support for Paul comes out at between 9 and 13% and although that may not give him enough chance of succeeding, it does mean he will have an important and influential voice over the coming months. On top of the fundraising news we also have information from an event last night in Concord, N.H. where Ron Paul spoke to senior citizens. One of the things a lot of people are concerned about is losing Medicare but when asked about his previously discussed views on medicine being delivered by churches and institutions, Paul told how it was not his intention to take Medicare away.
Paul said of Medicare, “I would try to preserve it,” and said how the answer would not be to stop everything overnight, according to ABCNews. What he does want though is to give people a choice so that those who don’t want government health care can opt out of the system and write it off their taxes. Paul said, “I think that’s proper in a free society. You should not be pushed into corporate medicine by the government.” Paul’s audience may not have been won over though, with an informal poll finding most still undecided, many of whom said they were still waiting to hear from Herman Cain.
We’d like to hear your thoughts on this. Does Ron Paul’s stance over health care concern you? Maybe you’re reassured that Medicare would be preserved, or perhaps you think it’s a great idea to be able to opt out of government health provision? Does Ron Paul have your support? Let us have your comments.
