Michael Moore is my hero

I saw Michael’s movie “SiCKO” last week and highly recommend that everyone see it. After seeing it, I challenge any of you to say “I am proud to be an American” with a straight face. This movie is not about those without health insurance, it’s about health insurance companies cooking up excuses to deny the insured coverage for life-saving or health-preserving procedures in order to enhance their bottom line.

This movie points out how badly we need a single payer national-health plan in which everyone is insured for all conditions, with no co-pays. If this be socialized medicine, so be it. Let’s put a stop to insurance companies making a profit off of human misery. Go see the movie!
