Is This the Best We Can Do?

See video: Is This the Best We Can Do? asks Kucinich about Health Insurance for Health Care. "Government of the people or government by the corporations?" Oct 29, 2009 US House Speech

Is this the best we can do? Mandating private insurance? Forcing people to buy private insurance policies or pay a penalty, guaranteeing at least $50 billion dollars in new business for the insurance companies?

Is this the best we can do? Government negotiates rates which will drive up insurance costs, but the government won't negotiate with the pharmaceutical companies which will drive up pharmaceutical costs.

Is this the best we can do? Only 3% of Americans will go to a new public plan, while currently 33% of Americans are either uninsured or underinsured?

Is this the best we can do? Eliminating the state single payer option, while forcing most people to have to buy private insurance.

If this is the best we can do, then our best isn't good enough and we have to ask some hard questions about our political system, such as: Health Care or Insurance Care? Government of the people or  government by the corporations?" - One minute speech on the Floor of the House of Representative, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) talking on Oct 29, 2009 about the latest House health care plan.
