A Democrat I use to like, Congressman Dennis Kucinich, switches his vote in favor for socialized healthcare. My guess is, he probaly felt all important and cozzy inside when ObaMAO invited him on Air force One, so he switched his vote. Plus, he's an idiot.



 Kucinich Kisses the Ring as Obama Deceptively Sells Totalitarian Care in Ohio

In Obama’s bizarro world, health care at gunpoint will reduce premiums. Obama went to Cleveland recently and peddled his fantasy world. “You’ll be able to buy in, or a small business will be able to buy into this pool,” Obama said. “And that will lower rates, it’s estimated, by up to 14 to 20 percent over what you’re currently getting. That’s money out of pocket,” reports the Associated Press. “Your employer, it’s estimated, would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent, which means they could give you a raise.”
   

Obama had summoned Kucinich to Air Force One and Dennis kissed the ring.
Or rather money taken out of your pocket by a predatory state.
In fact, according to reality-based experts, Obamacare enforced by cops and SWAT teams will crank up your premiums.
Premiums are likely to keep going up even if the health care bill passes, experts say. “There’s no question premiums are still going to keep going up,” said Larry Levitt of the Kaiser Family Foundation, a research clearinghouse on the health care system.
If cost controls work as advertised, annual increases would level off with time. But don’t look for a rollback. Instead, the main reason premiums would be more affordable is that new government tax credits would help cover the cost for millions of people, according to the Associated Press.
Of course, any “tax credit” realized under the scheme will be annihilated in the coming months and years as the federal and state governments raise taxes to cover the losses to their shakedown due to the engineered collapse of the economy.
Obama’s voodoo math was a mistake, according to a White House spokesman. If health care costs dropped by 3,000 percent, as Obama said, government health care would be free many times over. In fact, Obama meant to say $3,000 not 3,000 percent.

Where did Obama get the $3,000 figure? From a report produced for the Business Roundtable, an association of big company CEOs. The report was issued in November and did not consider the final legislation Democrats in the Congress plan to ram through without actually voting on it.
Obama’s claim that an individual will save 14 percent to 20 percent comes from a Congressional Budget Office report based on earlier Senate legislation. The premium reduction of 14 percent to 20 percent that Obama cited would apply only to a portion of the people buying coverage on their own.
In December, the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation said people who pay for their own insurance would see a higher bill.
Meanwhile, Obama managed to arm-twist one-time totalitarian care opponent Dennis Kucinich into backing the plan Democrats say they will enact without votes in Congress. Obama had summoned Kucinich to Air Force One and Dennis kissed the ring. “Even though I don’t like the bill, I’ve made a decision to support it in the hope that we can move to a more comprehensive approach once this legislation is done,” he told reporters.
Apparently Kucinich no longer consider Obama’s totalitarian care plan a sham. In October, he said the entire legislative package was “a bailout for insurance companies.” The American people are “being mandated to buy private insurance. If you read the bill, the people are going to end up paying — the insurance companies can raise rates 25 percent right off the bat, if you read the bill,” said Kucinich.
Dennis Kucinich, one of a very small number of Democrats who originally opposed Obamacare, now apparently believes it is fine and dandy for the government to force the commoners to buy health care insurance at gunpoint. He also believes large insurance corporations deserve a monopoly in partnership with the government.

BHO is not a socialist that some say. He is clearly using profit motivation to get votes on Capitol Hill.

Nope he was just born into a faimly who believed in marxisim. His dad left him with his mom who also I believe enrolled him in a Marxist leaning school. He grew up with his teenage idol being a Marxisit radical. He because friends with Bill Ayers and sat in anti american Wright's church for 20 years. He also was photographed teaching Saul Alinski in college as a professor.

Not to mention he hired Van Jones knowing his radical past and surrounds himself with the Apollo Alliance who wrote the Stimulis Bill, His administration syas they agree with Mao, He has connections with the Tides foundation with George Sorros, and his chief visitor to the white house is Andy Stern from SEIU who's favorite slogan is workers of the world unite. Plus cant leave ot Acorn!!

No dont think there is an OUNCE of socialist in that man's bones. I just have to disregard the statement he made in the debate with McCain to judge his policy based on the people who surrond him

I was actually at a fairly high brow dinner party with Dennis and his wife about 6-7 months ago and I came away thinking the guy was a total sham. Our good friend was the host and she has known Dennis since the 80's when he was run out of Cleveland.

In conversation he came across as a pompous prick who believed he was smarter than everyone else and In private he was absolutely an a-hole if he wasn't the center of attention. I remember one instance where he asked for hot water for his tea. The server brought it for him and he let it sit, listening to himself talk for about ten minutes. By the time he got around to the water it was luke-warm and he lost his mind on the nearest server about it no longer being hot.

His wife, who is quite hot and a great deal hunger than him, was actually pretty cool and very smart. He spent most of the night giving her the evil eye because she was flirting with just about every guy and was actually the center of some very intellectual conversations. The host told us a few nights later how awkward the whole thing was and since they were staying at her home, how they fought all the time.

None of this is really a reason to dislike the mans politics I suppose. Just thought I would share.

The reason why Dennis didnt back the bill was because it didnt include a public option

Barry just took him oboard AF1 and explained to him that as Saul Alinsky said "the ends justify the means" and that as the dems have always said "this bill is a starter home" they get the foot in the door and that a public option is on the horizon and we just need to pass this bill to get the ball rolling

Forty -- I could easily see that situation developing between them two. It appears to me he's got a permanent case of Napoleon complex topped with a sprinkling of jealous paranoia.

Yep - curious what the President has to say about this kind of quid pro quo.

Up close and personal (I think he has seen a few up close and personal BTW) that is exactly the case. My wife and I thought it was great theater watching him from afar when he wasn't the center of attention. Oddly he wasn't the only celebrity there so to watch conversations shift and see him go into sulk mode was pretty funny. Reminded me of Steve Carrell in the Office.

He actually started stumping for "contributions" once everyone had a few drinks. At a birthday party. Stay classy Dennis.

You know that doesn't mean he is or isn't a socialist.  But a clever use of words nonetheless.  I am becoming convinced Obama is not comfortable with the United States most folks believe in.  The next couple of years are going to be hard for everyone.
