I’m not a fan of the medical world…No, not because of the great people who work in the medical field, heck my best friend in grammar school became a doctor, (which scared me, since I remembered him being that kid I did goofy stuff with and now he’s seriously saving lives and I’m still doing goofy stuff), then there is the nurse named Janet that I had a major crush on when I was in the hospital for an extended stay at the age of 9… plus all of those people in that ran around in those fashionable scrubs who have tended to my health issues over the years…so yeah, they I don not have a problem with…it is the individuals who don’t practice medicine but somehow decide what type of treatment that I receive, regardless of what my own doctor professionally thinks.
So, when I saw “SICKO” I wasn’t surprised by how this countries HMO is screwing up the health industry by turning a profit at the expense of individuals. What blew me away was how other countries health care is not only better but darn right amazing. Sure, some may argue that Michael Moore gives a slant on how he covers his subjects and knows how to get the message that he wants to convey out there…but there is a point where you have to admit that he is onto something here.
Even if you question the messenger here, this is one message that should be heard and considered. My point that I will push here from “SICKO” is simply, if the fire department, public schools, police, libraries, military all can be run by the government in the interest for the people and NOT with the agenda to turn a profit, why can’t the health system follow the same concept?
Go see “SICKO” and be a part of the conversation that may make a difference.
