    Kucinich willing to cast the vote that kills health reform

    What do unabashed Liberal Dennis Kucinich and Republicans have in common? Their opposition to Obama's health care bill.
    Facing razor-thin margins in the House, Democratic leaders are hoping to convert the sole liberal who opposes their health care bill, but it seems they have their work cut out because he isn't budging.

    Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) on Monday defended his opposition to the proposal in an appearance on MSNBC's Countdown With Keith Olbermann, citing as his central concern its lack of a robust public option to provide competition for insurance companies.
    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.

    Kucinich is one of the very few politicians who will never be bought out by anyone. That is to be highly admired. Hate his stances all you want... but you cannot tell me this man is not ethical.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre 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.

    I believe that Dennis is opposing the bill for exact same reason as the Republicans...they all believe it won't work.

    He wants single payer, and believes that this bill will not benefit Americans the way it should.

    Yeah, he believes it won't work, as is. Purdy much what the Republicans are saying...the bill won't work as is.

    They're saying it won't work for different reasons, but both sides are saying that it won't work.

    Here's a fence post you can argue with.

    Believe what you want but it's not true. Republicans oppose the Bill because they don't believe in reforming health insurance/care. Otherwise they would have attempted it in 2001, or 2002 or 2003 or 2004 or 2005 or 2006 or 2007 or 2008 or any time since the New Deal.

    ...Another one!

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

    Heeeeeere's yer fence post
