Despite getting shut out in delegates last night, John Kasich hasn’t quit the race. Let’s look at why he’s staying in.

Kasich on enacting Obamacare in his state: “I got money I can bring home to Ohio. It’s my money. So what do we do with the money? We have ten thousand people sitting in prisons who are mentally ill. First of all we have more people sitting in prisons in America than we have psychiatric hospitals, who are mentally ill. To me that’s immoral.”
So, law and order is immoral. Not participating in Obamacare is immoral. Got that? Now let’s compare with what the other candidates have said:
Ted Cruz: “It’s not complicated: We promised the voters full repeal of #Obamacare on reconciliation. We should do exactly that.”
Donald Trump: “Everybody’s gotta be covered. This is an un-Republican thing for me to say. Because they say no no the lower 25% they can’t afford. I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everyone’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now. I will make deals with existing hospitals to take care of people. You know what? This is probably… Government’s gonna pay for it.”
So we see the pro-socialized medicine John Kasich staying in the race to throw states from the anti-Obamacare Ted Cruz to the pro-socialized medicine Donald Trump. Coincidence?
