Kucinich Unveils Not-for-Profit Heath Care Plan
Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, last week unveiled a health care plan that seeks to “shift the country from a privatized, for-profit health care system to a single-payer, not-for-profit one controlled by the government, similar to the British universal health care program,” the New York Times reported.
The congressman then accused current front-runners of having essentially the same plan.
“There is no difference between Senator Clinton, Senator Edwards, and Mitt Romney,” he said according to MSNBC.
Kucinich joined other candidates in attacking current poll-leader New York Sen. Hillary Clinton in Tuesday night’s MNBC debate, accusing “his fellow Democrats of being ‘enablers’ for not ruling out war against Iran. He said the Democratic support for labeling the Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist group amounted to ‘licensing President Bush,’” the Washington Post reported.
To boost his online presence, Kucinich’s campaign launched an online video streaming network, which will feature original broadcasts of Kucinich and allow viewers to chat online.
“Finally — live video where Dennis doesn’t have to force his way into the debate!” the site proclaims.
Besides reaching out to online voters, Kucinich spoke at Sunday’s Arab American Institute National Leadership conference in Detroit. The congressman will continue his campaign during this weekend’s New Hampshire National Forum on Equality, Opportunity and Access.
