Kuciniching Health Care
Every now and then, I’m looking through some of the policies that Congressman Dennis Kucinich supports, and wondering why he didn’t get more support as a presidential candidate in 2004 and 2008. Then Kucinich reminds me, with comments like this one he made on the floor of the House of Representatives on Friday:
“America faces not only a health crisis but a spiritual crisis when health insurance and other interest groups stand between the people and their government extracting the wealth of our Nation and appropriating it to a few at the expense of the many and pressing upon the many the burden of illness and the brevity of life.”
Coherence in the defense of universal health care is no vice.
