Beltway Happenings
January 24, 2007--Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) spoke in support of H.R. 676, the United States National Health Insurance Act, at an event organized by the California Nurses Association and the Physicians for a National Health Program.  The bill, introduced by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), would expand Medicare to provide that, "All individuals residing in the United States (including any territory of the United States) are covered under the USNHI Program entitling them to a universal, best quality standard of care."  This event came the day after President Bush delivered his State of the Union Address, in which he proposed a tax deduction for individuals purchasing health insurance.
