2008 Elections

Dennis Kucinich on Health Care


(Editor's Note: Kucinich dropped his bid for the Democratic nomination on Jan. 25, 2008, changing his focus to run for re-election to his Ohio congressional seat. He did so after having been excluded from televised Democratic debates in Nevada, New Hampshire and South Carolina.)

Under a Dennis Kucinich administration, universal, single-payer, not-for-profit health care would be available. His plan is to get rid of for-profit health insurance companies that make up 31 percent of health care spending would save the industry 365 billion dollars. This savings would be enough to cover everyone in the country according to Kucinich.
