Still "SiCKO After All These Years

Jerry Policoff/Op Ed News


If you care about affordable, accessible health care in the United States you'll want to be in Philadelphia this weekend for two remarkable events that will re-unite Oscar-winning documentary film maker Michael Moore with the cast of his 2007 ground breaking film, "SiCKO," on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the film's release.   Former Cigna Execuitive turned whistleblower, Wendell Potter will be there as well in another reunion of sorts.   Moore and Potter have never shared a stage face-to-face before, but Wendell Potter's last official act before resigning from Cigna was to attend the premiere od "SiCKO" to spy on Michael Moore and his film on behalf of the health insurance industry.
