Congressman Petri (R-WI) Backs Single-Payer Healthcare
Congressman Tom Petri (R-WI) doesn’t think ObamaCare goes far enough in allowing for a complete government take over of healthcare. The 73 year-old Republican was first elected to Congress more than three decades ago, and has repeatedly voiced his support for a so-called “single-payer” healthcare system. Such a plan would allow for a European-style healthcare reform that forces all consumers to get their insurance directly | Read More »
Did the Ohio Democratic Chairman engineer Dennis Kucinich’s exit from Congress?
The Dennis and Marcy primary saga continues. First, a look at Kucinich’s and Kaptur’s districts as they stand today, before redistricting. Dennis’s 10th comprises most of western Cuyahoga county. Marcy, in the 9th, represents most of Lucas County (including Toledo), all of Ottawa and Erie Counties, and western and southern Lorain County. In Ohio, we knew that we were going to lose 2 seats in | Read More »
Where’s the Outrage?
Today we are faced with an out of control administration that believes it can involve America in a war on the whim of the executive instead of the act of Congress.

2012 Democratic Presidental Primary
I would love to see a mess of the 2012 Democratic Presidential Primary, just an utter free for all. Maybe Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama, Dennis Kucinich, and Evan Byah. Just a mess there would be someone running as a socialist (Dennis), a “moderate” Democrat (Evan), The sitting Pres, and someone running on experience and exploiting all of the president’s flaws to the base and independents. | Read More »
A Peak Into a Frightening Future
Predictions are inherently difficult. Attempting to take today’s knowledge and apply it five, ten, or fifty years in the future can often get you into trouble. For instance, British physicist Lord Kelvin predicted that “heavier than air flying machines are impossible.” Or, the president of a Bank who advised Henry Ford’s attorney that “the horse is here to stay but the automobile is only a | Read More »
CBO Count…No Account – The Chief Cluck Calls In The Chicks.
There’s no CBO count as promised on Wednesday, but the word is that they are desperately trying to get the monster genie stuffed back into a three sizes too small lamp. No matter what the Congressional Budget Office does, it can’t make this trillion dollar boondoggle revenue neutral. Dennis Kucinich (D) Ohio was a really cheap vote and he sold his for the price of | Read More »
Kucinich – Then and Now
Remember Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) in 2009 who opposed the House version of ObamaCare containing a public option, because the House bill “put the government in the role of accelerating the privatization of health care.” He argued that ObamaCare solution is “within the current structure of a predatory, for-profit insurance system which makes money not providing health care.” Well, that same Congressman Kucinich has changed and now supports a bill without | Read More »
Kucinich: Bailout ‘Driven by Fear Not Fact’
Ohio congressman Dennis Kucinich suggested the $700 billion bailout package was sending America towards ‘casino socialism, where the only real product is debt’.

Obama is No Dennis Kucinich
With this latest flip flop on drilling, it occurred to me that Obama is the anti-Dennis Kucinich. I’ve always liked Kucinich, but I never knew why. Now I’ve figured it out. Dennis Kucinich has ridiculous ideas for America, but he is a sincere man. He stands up for what he believes is best for our country and fights for those ideas come hell or high | Read More »
Proof that the Founding Fathers hated Dennis Kucinich. More or less.
Good old Dennis Kucinich is back in the news with his Bush impeachment attempt, claiming that he goaded Congress into voting for war with Iraq by using false claims. Given that the Bush-bash strategy no longer works (h/t pennpatriot), Kucinich must just be desperate and not mindful of the fact that being honestly mistaken does not equal lying. In looking at this in the historical | Read More »
Dennis, the Dems, and the Will to play political games
Dennis Kucinich’s articles of impeachment against President Bush are finally getting their hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, but the goal of the Dem leadership is not to impeach the President in an election year. Instead, the panel will conduct an election-year review — possibly televised — of anything Democrats consider to be Bush’s abuse of power. Kucinich, D-Ohio, is likely to testify. But so | Read More »
