I am getting the strong feeling that Michael Moore’s movie “Sicko”, to be released on June 29, is going to be a force in this country. The trailer is now out and can be viewed on YouTube (where else?)
What Moore has also done is to create a group on YouTube, and invite people to submit videos talking about their own healthcare nightmares. Some of the stories are tragic, there is at least one person pushing some fruit concoction that cured all of their problems – but there are still the stories.
Moore has an agenda, Moore is not trying to be dispassionate – we’ve been mature and dispassionate in this country since 1946, when Harry Truman proposed a national insurance program. Medicare was a compromise. The SCHIP program is a second compromise. Now it’s time to be passionate.
