Anyone remember Dennis Kucinich? He was one of the many Democrat candidates for President in 2008. Well you will be sad to learn that while eating at the Capital Food Service Congressman Kucinich bit into an unpitted olive that was inadvertently placed in his sandwich and “broke a tooth.”
The pain and suffering Mr. Kucinich has endured since this unfortunate accident has led him to file a lawsuit against the food service providers for $150,000 in district court. The cost of the dental repairs most likely won’t be a factor in the suit because Kucinich is covered by dental insurance in that “Cadillac” policy provided free of charge by we the taxpayers. What is interesting is the fact that this “accident” occurred back in April of 2008 yet Democrat Kucinich silently suffered for over 3 years before the dollar signs came on in his head and he filed suit. Perhaps he didn’t want something this ridiculous to be an issue during his presidential run. Just who is this idiot?
Kucinich’s former re-election website makes the claim that he is “America’s most courageous congressman.” Kucinich makes the claim on his congressional website that a “not-for-profit” healthcare system ran by our government would lower healthcare costs for everyone yet it is exactly actions like this lawsuit that drive up our liability costs.
No Mr. Kucinich, what would lower healthcare costs is sweeping tort reform that would include a mandate for a minimum number of days in jail for people filing frivolous lawsuits because they are opportunists seeking a lottery win. Lawyers taking these cases should also be mandated to join you in your jail cell.
