Ask Right Questions and Save Country from Further Healthcare Crisis: Michael Moore

uld effect change in the health-care system.

In "Sicko," he finds an uninsured patient who lost two fingers and, for financial reasons, is forced to make a choice about which one he wants reattached. Moore wants to eliminate debates like that by establishing a single-payer insurance system that is not profit-based.

"Every other Western industrialized country has single-payer health insurance except us," he said. "And [in] each of those countries, [citizens] live as long or longer than we do."

"Sicko" is filled with examples of free or virtually free care around the world, from cheap prescription drugs to free hospital stays. The movie features a British hospital in which the cashier gives money to patients with reduced means. He said American audiences would be shocked by how health care was handled in other countries.

Pending that solution, Moore thinks Americans need to do their part to avoid the health-care system in the first place. After "Sicko," he's come up with a personal plan to cut his health-care costs by losing weight: Call it less is Moore.

"I changed what I was eating not that radically," he said. "Guys like me from the Midwest, we're never going to go on diets or go to a spinning class."

Another commentator agreed with Moores criticism and said that the Bush government had, for the last 6 1/2 years, been more interested in placating the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries, disregarding what was best for the American people. The average citizen cannot afford health insurance on their own and too often must choose between eating or buying needed medicine. There must be a middle ground between our situation today and socialized medicine! he hoped. But the problem none such seems to be round the corner.
