Kucinich to vote yes

The difference between Dennis Kucinich and Ralph Nader is that Kucinich isn't willing to sacrifice the well-being of lots of people in order to tilt at windmills. I agree with him that only a single-payer plan or strict government control of the insurance industry will create a reasonable system here, but for the foreseeable future these things ain't going to happen. The first step is to consolidate the gains the Dems have made, which will take some of the wind out of the PTR's sails. Eventually, costs will make it imperative to replace this temporary splint with a real cure. We simply can't afford to let the Republicans (PTR) gain a victory here and now.
