Eclair and I went to see Michael Moore's latest documentary "Sicko" today.
Without his usual side order of snide silliness and gratuitous jabs at that idiot Bush and Dastardly Dick, Moore managed to get across the point that, thanks to intensive lobbying efforts by huge insurance and pharmaceutical companies, America's health care is behind that of Canada, England, France and even Cuba.
Go see the movie and decide for yourself if health care in America needs a drastic overhaul.
See if you can tell me why the same exact inhaler that helps bring respiratory relief costs $120 in America and about a nickel in Cuba.
See for yourself how a government-paid, general practice physician in Paris can still afford to live in a million dollar home and drive the same kind of top of the line car a physician here can afford.
Sicko transcends political lines.
It's about how American insurance and pharmaceutical companies have fucked us, fuck us and will continue to fuck us.
Gee, I wonder if hatred toward those robber barons constitutes a pre-existing condition?
