Emanuel wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their patients and consider social justice, such as whether the money could be better spent on somebody else.

Manny is also involved in "global financing" too, but dont bring up anything that could make you believe he is apart of any conspiracy theorists ideas. Only gullible people read into that stuff, right?  :ya-ok:

sicko sucked im sorry. i fucking hate Michael Moore. he makes it look sssoooo glamorous.

and from experience, health care over seas sucks ass. my grandma lives in Portugal, and every month we have to send her money to go see a specialist cause she would have to wait MONTHS to see a doctor. MONTHS, if not more. people die like crazy waiting for care that is sub-par at best. why do you think the hospitals in buffalo are so busy? cause of all the Canadians coming across the border to get care cause it sucks up there.

i am very happy with my $15 copay and can get in with no wait.

ask my grandma ho awesome it is.

Its just like his previous documentaries, biased and full of holes. He is never objective. He did not once talk to anyone who opposed or had issues with their healthcare in all of the 'socialist' countries. Dont say, its because they dont have problems. I know that's BS.

Michael bringing you MOORE propaganda. Talk about sensationalism.

A division of our corporation is in Canada and that is kind of a running joke with them. A lot of people from the US assume that their coverage is great. I also have been told horror stories about how they prioritize patients surgeries weeks to months out and then people here think waiting all day in the hospital ER is bad.

I knew you guys would love it  :stir:


So why is an inhaler $220 here and .50 in Cuba?
I'll tell you, it's corporate leverage over Government programs. Bottom line, oh by the way that is all they are concerned with anyway the Bottom line, not you, not me, their bottom line. Listen to the former director of Humana, that is exactly why she left the position. Who do the lobbyist lobby for, us?

While the World's average life span is 65 years old, Cuba's is 76 years old, so yeah they are healthy.

here is a wikapedia list of the longest life span in Countries, the majority of the highest rankings are not single payer insurance programs but a universal health care plan.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_life_expectancy


I care what products cost in other Countries when we are buying the exact same thing and being raped for it. There is a thing called fair market value, or there use to be. If the drug companies want to charge these absorbante amounts, the profits should trickle down, they don't they remain in the executives pockets. That is where the real problem exists.

here's another great example. Infant mortality rate. A baby born in Cuba has a better chance of survial than in the USA, that's just not right.

just curious...how many cubans are killed every year from high speed crashes on there freeway system...

we probably have fewer deaths due to donkeys pulling carts accidents than cuba....


is so much more than just health insurance...you just can't point to one thing...
