And they're off!

CLEVELAND -- In an exclusive interview Monday morning with NewsChannel5, U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich is proposing giving every American a stake in the Treasury Department's request for a $700,000 billion bailout.

Kucinich wants to create a U.S. Mutual Trust Fund where every American taxpayer would be given $2,300 in shares of the companies that would benefit from the bailout.

Kucinich will deliver his proposal to Democrats in Congress Monday night.

NewsChannel5's Chief Investigative Reporter Duane Pohlman will have more information about Kucinich's plan in an exclusive report at 6.
