just saw michael moore's 'sicko'

It's a good deal you just have to wait a while to be seen by the right Dr. sometimes.

I had a friend who was diagnosed with a very treatable cancer and was set to have routine surgery to have it removed and treated. It was postponed because of severely backed up schedules, lack of enough hands to get the job done in a timely manner and booked up rooms in the healthcare facilities.

THREE MONTHS LATER they finaaaally get him in, open him up only to find its too late, the cancer spread outwards and took over such a large portion of the body that any chance of survival was absolutely gone.

They closed him back up and told him he had three weeks to live. He did, in a great deal of pain, for those last few weeks because of canada's shitty ass healthcare system. All of which could have been PREVENTED.

Fuck Michael Moore. He can get the hell out of the country if he has such a problem with it.

If they start funding the mental health system i'll be happy, until then i'm pretty fucked. If you're a cancer patient you at least have a hope, if you're mentally ill they might as well give you a goddamn gun an tell you to try not to make a mess.

micheal moore is a sicko.

do you realize sales tax is like 19% in ontario?

Believe me you may get some form of healthcare but youll pay for it some way, probably through painfully high taxes.

And the prospective numbers for a national healthcare system in the us are not far below the total cost of war in iraq, so theres food for thought when you think about the seriousness of the prospect and the priorities of our lawmakers, security or healthcare which we already have aspects of.

Nothing is free in this world, even health care. However this is one thing that should be free to everybody on this planet. You can not put a price on a human life.

We have the NHS (National Health service) in England. That is free but it is paid for by our taxes which are high here where i live. Once you earn over a certain pay here you are in the 40% tax bracket. 40% of ya salery straight in the tax mans pocket before you see your money.

Put it this way, i earn £25k a year which is about 50k in USD. My dad payes more tax than i earn every year.

That's ridiculous. From the numerous things I've read, and from what some members (british ones of course) have said on here, your NHS is such a fuck up that it doesn't even come close to warranting those high taxes. They should only tax the people who use the service, I would be fine if we did that in this country, as I wouldn't use it.

Healthcare is not a right, it's something that you help yourself to. I'm sorry, but I don't want to pay taxes that cover people who have hurt themselves with incredibly poor diets and things of the sort. Sure, once in a while it will go to a cancer patient who really needs it, but most of the time it's going to pay for some fatbody who has a heart attack because he can't stop shoveling down big macs. Document the fact that you didn't cause it, and it's fine by me.

That's why I'm not a big fan of socialism, it completely eliminates the need for personal responsibility. It works in smaller countries with common interests and a common culture, but in a nation with so many differences, it's going to be impossible. We already pay enough useless taxes as it is.

im so moving to canada. americas healthcare looks really bad after seeing the movie.

Have you seen his documentary, Bowling for Columbine? I really like it. Theres this one scene where people in Canada just left their doors open and they dont lock their doors at night. Canada is more safe than it is here in SF apparently

Canada's health care is by no means perfect. We do pay for it in the form of taxes, and the waiting hours can seem endless. However, when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, we didn't see a single bill. Everything was paid for and we never had to worry about where to find money to pay for her treatments. Even when it came to radiotherapy where there is a waiting list, she barely had to wait for it at all.

In short, when it mattered the most, canadian health care really came through for us.

People all over this country don't lock their doors at night, it just depends on where you live. I'm sure plenty of folks in Toronto and Montreal lock their doors at night. Also, bowling for columbine was a nit picked suckjob by Moore. Man is that guy good at hooking in the retards who can't think for themselves.

I dont think its true that people all over this country dont lock their doors. Its better to be safe than sorry. Petaluma was thought to be a safe area but Polly Klaas was murdered there. The doors were not locked.

i loved micheal moore's film on 9/11.but he can afford health care because of the money he is making on these films.i think the problem is doctors wont advertise their prices as with hospitals.i mean 150 dollars a visit to the ER is crazy.i also got put on hold with all the stupid paperwork.time i got to see a doctor..2 hours passed in the ER!to be all fair to hospitals..they usually adjust the prices down if you have no insurance.i think the rich in the usa can afford to pay more taxes.that includes rich democrats like micheal moore.we also have enough people in our country now.we just cant afford to take in more espanics from mexico.and we should stop trying to spend our tax dollars on iraqi's that stab us in the back and kill americans.we should pull out of iraq with a warning for these people.if the iraqis and other muslims keep up the bullshit with americans...we will just nuke the whole middle east.its cheeper,cheeper oil and we would be without a bunch of trouble making arabs!
