Dennis Kucinich: Why I Voted NO (on fascist "reform")

We have been led to believe that we must make our health care choices only within the current structure of a predatory, for-profit insurance system which makes money not providing health care. We cannot fault the insurance companies for being what they are. But we can fault legislation in which the government incentivizes the perpetuation, indeed the strengthening, of the for-profit health insurance industry, the very source of the problem...

...instead of working toward the elimination of for-profit insurance, H.R. 3962 would put the government in the role of accelerating the privatization of health care. In H.R. 3962, the government is requiring at least 21 million Americans to buy private health insurance from the very industry that causes costs to be so high, which will result in at least $70 billion in new annual revenue, much of which is coming from taxpayers. This inevitably will lead to even more costs, more subsidies, and higher profits for insurance companies - a bailout under a blue cross.

Read the rest here.

Kucinich, while still somewhat naive on the subject, sees the healthcare "reform" for what it really is: the Democrats making us all slaves of the insurance companies (which they claim to hate).


  1. Aww you beat me to it. Now I won't bother.

    Totally agreed. I hope it's mired in the Senate.

  2. I don't think it will pass. If it does, I predict even the completly bankrupt (and this is politics we're takling about, so it's already a pretty low bar...) GOP will wind up in a reactionary victory on 2014, purley out of voter spite for whats going on.

    It won't really solve anything, though. It will be nice schadenfreude, as the Dems have been completely arrogant & smug to think that retard idiots in the south & their urbanite Drone counterpart hipsters are too stupid to understand their motivations for this "reform" & cap 'n trade, but that will be a shallow respite as the Statists march the puppet show on forth.

    Oh well. Maybe it's the USA's turn to be the Soviet Union?
