Jeb Bush must be panicking. Why else would he suddenly be making a pronouncement that he would repeal and replace Obamacare? Leading from behind, Bush is looking for a gamechanger;
Bush is the third major Republican candidate to release an Obamacare-centric plan, along with US Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker unveiled his healthcare proposals earlier this year before he dropped out of the race.
Highlighting that this is about votes rather than conviction was this,
As part of its effort, however, the Bush campaign said it would introduce a "transition" plan for what it estimated were 17 million individuals it said have become "entangled in Obamacare."
Bush clearly sees the polling that shows, despite his fundraising advantage, he's not connecting with Republican voters. Hence the timing of this announcement. The odd part is that it happens on the same day as the first Democratic candidates debate. It's almost as if Bush wants it buried by other news. Is that deliberate or just him out of tune with what it takes to win a presidential election cycle?
