Our Health-Care Debate Is Making Me Sick
I finally watched Michael Moore’s Sicko on cable TV this weekend. I’ve never been a fan of his head-clubbing style of film-making, but this doc makes a very convincing case about how Americans have been fooled into fearing a French-style health-care system. Compared to what we have now in the U.S., France offers a health-care nirvana.
Our current debate almost makes me sick with sadness. Sure, almost any reform passed this year will be an improvement over the current travesty we have now, but it won’t come close to fulfilling the dreams of those who correctly chant “health-care is a right.”
