    Re: Kucinich willing to cast the vote that kills health reform

    I have to say I agree with Kucinich on this one. I see nothing in the bill that will bring costs down over the long term. All this seems to do is prolong the inevitable collapse of the market unless serious changes are made.

    I say we may as well let the thing collapse now instead of it collapsing later and possibly bankrupting the country with it.

    While it is very true that Kucinich is opposing health care reform for different reasons than the Republicans are, he is still opposing it. With that in mind, I believe a strong case can be made for the expression "The enemy of my enemy is my friend". In that vein, if I were an Ohio resident, I would surely vote for Kucinich over any Republican who would be soft, and possibly vote for the health insurance bill.

    Kucinich may be a Liberal, but in the end, his vote will be a Conservative one, even though that is not his aim. In the end, it's the numbers that count. And if Kucinich is the deciding vote that sends this hogwash down, then I won't care that he is a Liberal. We will have found common ground for uncommon reasons, and that will be reason enough to call him my hero, at least for that day.

    Rock on, Dennis.

    Article is here.
    I think he's posturing to get some free press.

    He's outspoken and interesting, like Ron Paul... But at the end of the day, he mostly votes with his party...

    Hogwash. They offer him a free ride home via a spaceship and a key of Columbian Gold for the trip back to his planet and he will sign it in a heartbeat.

    You must agree, however, that the reason for all of them is because, they believe the bill won't work, as is. Yes?

    It's obligatory:





    And my fav quote of all time:

    Wow, Right... you certainly proved that the man does not stand by his convictions, and is completely bought out by lobbyists. How silly of me!!!
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    After being watered down so heavily to satisfy the Republicans, I don't expect the bill is going to work very well either.

    To satisfy Republicans? That was certainly stupid of them since they didn't need any Repub votes. Maybe those voting for Democrats should require those they vote for have basic math skills.
