    Oh Gawd...
    Not another Michael Moore film.
    His films are completely biased and filled with innacuracys.
    Mr. Moore is the biggest D-bag to ever set foot in film school.

    Watch the first 10 minutes. After that, could you explain to me how Michael Moore is being biased or inaccurate?

    I'm just saying, those are real people with real stories. Nothing Moore is manipulating.

    Oh, I'm not a huge Moore fan either. I just really feel bad for these people.

    I'll bet ya right now that Michael Moore gets his health care in this country with traditional doctors that he is slamming in this film.

    He's not slamming doctors...He's talking about health care policies and the insurance companies that are bending us over and f*cking us.

    Just watch it.

    EDIT: Watch the part about insurance "hit men."

    How is the average American supposed to pay for medical operations that cost them $200,000 ?

    They would end up like the first people shown in the video. If you didn't watch, let me sum it up. Two people with pretty good jobs (middle to upper middle class) both became sick. One had a few heart attacks, and the other developed cancer. They tried to pay for their treatment, but ended up losing their house and having to move in with their kids...

    In my opinion, they would have been better off killing somebody and going to jail. At least in jail you would get free health care.

    Well for one thing, he only shows people that are having hardships.
    He doesn't interview any of the majority of the US population whos healthcare is just fine.
    He doesn't discuss any of the positives relating to healthcare.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's flawless..far from.
    So the government spends less on health care, well guess what...we have a stronger military, lower taxes, decent hwy infrastructure, etc, etc,.
    You take some and you give some, thats just a reality of life.
    We can't have everything all peaches and cream....Speaking of which I'm sure Mr. Moore could go for a few 5 gallon pales of cream right about now.


    Then he'll start having heart problems and go visit one of the heathcare systems he bashes in his film.
    The guy is a fat ass no good piece of shit who makes millions of of suckers who buy into his garbage.

    If Michael Moore thinks the US such a horrible place to live, I dont' understand why he doesn't just pack it up and leave.
    Maybe he can find better healthcare in Mexico.
    In Mexico he wouldn't have to worry about our corrupt evil president who eats babies for breakfast either.


    Plus I wouldn't have to see this disgusting pig plastered on billboards and advertisements for the next six months.

    Michael F-ing Moore...

    The answer is "the health care machine"...and they say LAWYERS are crooks...at least all we do is say, "if you don't pay me, I will make you broke"...the doctors go one step further, "if you don't pay me, you will die"

    That's because the majority of people with health care are not needing to use it right now.

    It's not really the gov's fault here. It's private companies who are sticking it to people. Watch the part about insurance "hit men" and the doctors who are told they will receive bonuses if they deny more people care than the other doctors. F*cked up right?

    Making fun of his weight is just a cheap shot...

    I would only assume he will get his health care in the country he lives in. However, Moore does have the luxury to pretty much pay off his bills in cash. All he's trying to do is help us become more aware of how this industry operates and try and find a way to fix it. He's not harming anybody.

    I don't remember him really bashing the U.S. Although both him, and the rest of us know we could do a little more to help people in our own country than everyone else in the f*cking world.

    Like I said, I am not a big fan of his either. However, I do respect this film. He's only trying to help. I can't say whether he's wrong or not, but America needs people like Michael Moore. People like him make America America. He doesn't just lay down and not question anything our government does. He offers a second voice. Whether it's wrong or right, it's still nice to have sometimes.
