Kucinich speaks about the current so-called healthcare reform bill

...But instead of working toward the elimination of for-profit insurance, H.R. 3962 would put the government in the role of accelerating the privatization of health care.

This inevitably will lead to even more costs, more subsidies, and higher profits for insurance companies — a bailout under a blue cross.
