its that powerful. the US health care industry cares about money first. patients second.


hospitals over-seas like in the UK or France has absolutely has no charge health care. patients even wait less in the waiting room. yes, its true, you wait less for health care also. don't by into that bull**** you have to wait 8 months for receiving health care.

I'm sure it was a great movie, and I'm sure the republicans will just trash it. They can never take responsibility for trashing the country. God who in the hell would ever vote for Bush. It's great now that the democrats have a little more power back since last election, now maybe Bush's friends wont be able to steal any more elections.

Bush..................

Who the H#LL voted for him and why? I remember tons of people on here wanting Bush back in 04. I hope they have changed their views now.

But the democrats are still a bunch of p*ssys in my book. They need to stand of to Bush and bring are troops home soon like they said they would when we elected them.

I never understood why some other countries are able to provide FREE healthcare. Can someone explain to me how that is possible and why America doesn't provide it being one of the richest countries in the world.

Sorry, maybe I'm a little late on other country's policies..

It's called socialism. One of the negative aspects is preposterously high taxes compared to the US.

Take Moore's films with a grain of salt, he definitely plays his angles.

Republicans want to lower taxes for rich people and make all the people with minimum wage jobs and no health care pay all the taxes. We are in a war that going to cost our country trillions. Soldiers are coming home with severe PDSD, and other mental traumas. The ones that don't die seem to pay a worse price, live life in hell because they can't afford health care. Aren't are soldiers still having to buy kevlar off ebay while our Sec of Defense goes around in a fully armored Hummer?

I always wonder why rich people can be so greedy. Make a million dollars a year and get taxed 50%, or make $20,000 a year and get taxed 10%..Hmmmm?

I'll take the $500,000m over the 18 grand.

Sad thing is that there are some people in the Canadian government that want to privatize health care

Australia is far from socialist. I think there are a few things wrong with our country, but the health system is damn good. You have a public system and a private system, with heavy incentives attached if you choose the latter.

It's also because the USA was built on a hell of a lot of unpaid labour.
