Kucinich & Moore are wrong: Listen to Natoma Canfield
Advertisements [?]
I find myself seething with frustration at two of the people I admire most in the realm of progressive issues and politics: Michael Moore and Dennis Kucinich. Watching Countdown on MSNBC last night brought it all to a head. I listened to President Obama tell the story of Natoma Canfield, a woman priced out of the health insurance market only to be diagnosed with leukemia.

Then I listened to Ms. Canfield herself, speaking from her hospital bed after a day of treatments, answering Lawrence O'Donnell's question about what she would tell her Congressman, Dennis Kucinich, who says he'll vote against this legislation because it doesn't go far enough.

Natoma Canfield said simply this:

"Well, it just seems to me that everything needs a start"

And with that, a self-employed house cleaner and cancer patient in Ohio spoke more eloquently and with more wisdom than either Michael Moore or Dennis Kucinich ever have on this issue.

First, if you haven't, watch this segment of President Obama yesterday, telling Natoma Canfield's story. It starts at about 2:05.
