Statement By Dennis Kucinch

Congressman Dennis Kucinich made the following statement today:

“Before we celebrate the new health care legislation, keep in mind that the American people will be required by law to buy private insurance and that they will pay a penalty if they don’t.  

That insurance companies will be subsidized by the government.

That insurance companies have had double digit increases in premiums in the past four years.

That we are locking in a for profit structure.

This is the result of a health care debate of which the flawed premise is that health care reform can not happen without the cooperation of the insurance companies, which make money by not providing health care.  

The truth is that reform can not happen with them. The insurance companies are the problem not the solution. This legislation, no matter how well intended, will likely not be able to deliver, cost too much and be another bail out for big business at the expense of the American people.”

    –Congressman Dennis Kucinich, D-OH

    in general.

    That’s all I can think of.

    Anybody watch that show “V” last night?   About how the beautiful aliens come to earth and “wow” everybody?

    Earthlings are stupid.   So easily manipulated.   And here we go again with it.

    Man, his wife is gorgeous.   It’s hard to think of anything else when that picture is on the page.   WOW.
