Sen Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) doubts the proposed health care reform will succeed. Kucinich has gone on the record stating he wants a public plan being the only option for healthcare reform.
Kucinich has stated that the problem with the private system is bureaucracy imposed by insurance companies. "One of every three dollars goes to the activities of the for-profit system," Kucinich said. He is a co-sponsor of House Resolution 676.
Resolution 676 is a bill that would make the senior medicare system to Americans of all ages. Only 85 members of the House have signed the bill.
Kucinich also thinks there will be no reform bill passed this year.
