At a press conference, on Capitol Hill, on May 13, 2009, Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) spoke out strongly for a single payer healthcare system. He said: “Healthcare is a Civil Right!”
The event was organized by the California Nurses Assoc/NNOC. In 2008, Rep. Kucinich ran for president in the Democratic Primary. Of all the candidates, he was the strongest in opposing the immoral and illegal Iraq War. For background, see: http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/ and http://kucinich.house.gov/
