Wake up, America!

Although Hillary Clinton got the headlines in this morning's paper Rep. Dennis Kucinich gave the most rousing speech at the Democratic Convention last night.

Millions of Americans have lost their jobs; trillions of dollars for an unwarranted war paid for with borrowed money; tens of millions of dollars in cash and weapons disappeared into thin air at the cost of the lives of our troops and innocent Iraqis.
The insurance companies took over health care. Wake up, America!
The pharmaceutical companies took over drug prices. Wake up, America!
The speculators took over Wall Street. Wake up, America!
See the video

The media characterize these remarks as attacks on Republicans. But Republicans pay the same inflated prices for drugs and health care as other Americans. Rank-and-file Republicans are hurt as much by these crimes as everyone else. Don't fall for the corporate media framing on these issues. Wake up, America!
