Cure Our Health Care

 

Michael Moore’s movie, SiCKO, shows all you need to know about the faults of the US health care system. In addition to the plight of the nearly 50 million Americans who are uninsured and dependent upon charity hospitals and clinics for rudimentary health care, Moore’s movie focuses on the problems faced by the 250 million Americans who have health insurance.

Members of the middle class might think they are safely covered until they go to the hospital and find they must battle the insurance bureaucracy as well as infections. Or until their job is “outsourced.”

 

Meanwhile, citizens of Canada, Britain, France and other industrialized democracies, regardless of employment or income status, simply show up at clinics and get treatment free of charge, with prescription drugs furnished at a fraction of the cost paid by Americans. Even Cuba does a better job of providing health care for its citizens than the United States.

Moore proposes a single-payer national health program under which:

 

1) Every resident of the United States must have free universal health care for life.

 

2) All health insurance companies must be abolished.

3) Pharmaceutical companies must be strictly regulated like a public utility.
