Rep. Dennis Kucinich (5)

Dennis Kucinich has had many political lives. Elected to the Cleveland City Council in 1969 at age 23, he was in 1977 elected as that great American city’s “boy mayor.” Kucinich’s refusal to bend to the demands of the downtown banks and the utility corporations that wanted him to privatize public services led to a withering electoral assault that would eventually force him from office.

Calls for a New Politics

Washington, January 2, 2013 –

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today called for a new politics in his final speech on the House floor of the 112th Congress.  The video can be seen here.  The text follows:

Mitt Romney did not invent predatory capitalism.  It’s been around for a while.

 

Predatory capitalism was already alive and well in 1978, in Cleveland.  That was when the One Percent who controlled the banks, and pretty much everything else of value, decided that they wanted to steal the local power company from the people of Cleveland.
