    Sicko

    Advertisements
    Ok with all this talk about healtcare, I was wondering. has anyone seen the movie Sicko by Micheal Moore? if so, what did you think of not just the movie, but the concepts he talk about?

    I've seen it and I thought it was wonderful. I know darn well that people can and should be able to get Proventil inhalers for $3-$5 each.

    It's not the health care sector that has made this so crzay, though, it's the insurers (and by extension, the lawyers).

    I'm 100% for socialized health care.

    The only reason I hear against it is "you'll die in a waiting room" I've talked to many people who live in different countries with socialized healthcare, and they all swear it's just not true. We actually wait longer here for appointments than they do.

    I think it should be required viewing in this country.

    And to the person who said they couldn't stand MM, I have showed this movie to my Republican friends and they didn't think he was being too "Michael Moore-ish" -- it also changed their views on the Health Care problem.
    It's Halloween so.... you know, BOO!

    I'll agree with that. I've never had to wait as long in the UK as I have here.

    I thought it was a great film. Very informative and actually changed the view of a friend of mine on the health care system in our country.

    I saw it, I loved the part where they took the people to Cuba and they were able to get the care they needed with out being denied or having to wait. Though I'm sure MM's people paid for it or something, someone prove me wrong!
