One honest man in Congress...


As a member of the Green Party (albeit a lukewarm and increasingly disenchanted one) and a strong believer in the absolute necessity of a left-wing third party in the United States, I rarely find myself praising a Democrat, but Dennis Kucinich earned that praise today. At least there is one Representative in the Congress that is not bought and paid for by the health care insurance industry.

Check out the following video clip in which Kucinich vows to vote against the current "health care reform" legislation, perhaps the only Democrat on the left to do so...

If Kucinich's vote is blamed for the failure of this insurance industry bailout bill masquerading as health care reform, he will need to hear from us thanking him for his vote. Lord knows the Democratic Party will demonize him as bad as they did Nader in 2000.
