Mike Moores "Sicko"
I usually dont particularly like Mike Moore but this time I think he has touched a subject that affects me. I am bullied by the insurace companies and I'm sick of it, literally. I have been getting bills for 2Gs and more for a few months now becasue they keep processing my visits to hospitol as out of network, it was in network. I told the person on the phone that of corse I wouldnt go to out of network place, its only a class 5 emergancy hospitol one of the biggest here. AAHHHHRRGGEEeee! I can go on and on...

Granted we have healthcare problems, but Moore is the last guy I'd listen too for solutions. It's proven fact that he uses lies and deception to further his agenda. Here's an expose on his movie "Bowling for Columbine"
The answer to our healthcare problems is not to give government more control over it. Why would we hand our healthcare over to the same kind of bureaucracy that administers welfare, social security, medicare, and all the other inefficient government programs. The answer is to get teh government out of it and return control to the individual.
In closing, Moore can french kiss my big white butt.

Michael Moore will probably expire soon from heart disease, or some other complication from his obesity. He really should watch the movie 'Supersize Me' instead of concentrating his efforts on bashing the United States ofer one issue or another. He obviously hates the way this country operates, whether it be our gun laws, healthcare state, or other issue. The bottom line is that this is America, love it or leave it. There's plenty of reason's why people risk their lives to get into the US, but not a lot of reasons to leave.Only time will tell

Anyway....I have already stated that our healthcare system needs work, and we certainly need a dialog concerning it, but Michael Moore is the wrong messenger.
-It's proven fact that he's a liar
-It's proven fact that he's an opportunist
-It's proven fact that he has a left wing agenda to push
-It's proven fact that he's a partisan hack
-It's proven fact that he has made millions on his movies that are known to be filled with lies and deceit.
IMHO, the items listed above removes any shed of credibility that he ever had. There are claims that he is a Canadian citizen (this I'm not sure about) and if so it makes it even more suspect that he's so genuinely concerned about the US.
This guy is nothing but a whore who has learned how to profit from making movies about emotional topics. If you want to blindly follow this guy, go ahead. Me...I'll continue to be a skeptic concerning Moore and learn all I can about him and his motives. Doing all this research onhim makes me rather open-minded, wouldn't you say?

It is true take if you get the government more involved with health care then it will really get screwed up.
The only problem with our health care system is that it is too expensive. Why is it expensive? Because, Doctors have to pay huge mal-practice insurance premiums and they have to past the cost on.
Why do doctors have huge insurance premiums? Because people can sue for millions and millions of dollars if they are hurt during a medical procedure.
So a few people and lawyers are making millions and millions of dollars from the malpractice insurance companies. All the rest of us are paying for this in the form of high medical cost.
The simple solution is to put a cap on how much a person can sue a doctor for mal practice. Also good doctors have to stop protecting bad doctors. If a doctor is a bad doctor get him out of the system.ESSAYONS

You know, I'm afraid to see this movie because I'm afraid it will push me over the edge. I think both points are credible that have been voiced thus far, being that the government will just screw it up if they are to take it, and the cap on doctors lawsuites isnt the term "tort reform"?
I will be that the universal healthcare system that would be imposed on us would be screwed from the get go, it seems that now is too late to install such a program and to do so would be disasterous. I do see the hesitation for tort reform, if its called that, by putting a cost to human life, but lets us look at the reality of the situation.
It is my beleife that the malpractice lawsuits are largly abused already and in the event the doctor sis make a human error and someone was hurt by it, they are only human them selves. Let us suppose that we didnt have the opportunity of a doctor to begin with, where would we be then? We would be dead of corse, so having a doctor is a privelege not a right, so with that being said, if a doctor makes a misstake its not like our rights have been violated, unless its malitious. I think our hard earned money would be better spent scrutinizing the doctors on their conduct and skill while capping the moneys payed out in legal suits against them. I think this is more of a practicle solution, I think it would bring down the costs, but there is another cost involved here, the pharesuticles. That industry might be better controled by government, it does affect the government more so that doctors. They already stepped in on the flue vacsene, amongst other things. What do you'all think?
