Kagen: Republicans don't belong in government

U.S. Rep Steve Kagen said Republicans deserve to be kept out of government for "centuries to come" because of the problems he said they have caused.

Kagen railed against what he called the "borrow and spend" policies of Bush and Cheney and held the Democratic Party as the party of "peace and prosperity."

Kagen said Dems will "send those Republicans packing home" in November.

"They don't belong in Washington, they don't belong in our statehouses, they don't belong in our local governments for centuries to come for what they've done to out country," Kagen said.

Kagen, a doctor, stressed the need for universal healthcare, saying healthcare is the only area where discrimination is still allowed.

"If you're a citizen you should be in," Kagen said "If it's in your body it should be covered."
