Congressman Dennis Kucinich Announces He Will Vote in Favor of Passing President Obama’s Health Reform Proposal

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–March 17, 2010.  Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) announced this morning that he will vote in favor of passing President Obama’s health reform legislation.

Congressman Kucinich previously voted ‘no’ on the earlier House bill as it did not contain universal coverage.  Kucinich has been a vocal supporter of expanding the Medicare program to cover everyone in the United States.

During this morning’s announcement, Kucinich said that “fear, myths and hyper-partisianship have made legitimate dicussion of the bill impossible.”  According to the Congressman, “fear has so infected our politics…we’re losing sight of the potential benefits the legislation has.”

While Kucinich was clear that the current legislation is not the bill he wanted to support, he said that after having discussions with President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, his family and constituents, he’s decided to “cast a vote in favor” of the bill.  He also indicated that he will continue to fight for the principle that “health care should be a civil right” and not merely a for-profit business available only to those fortunate enough to have the ability to pay.
