i just watched the movie sicko lastnight. i was rather appalled. i had the view of thinking universal health care would be a horrible thing. but after seeing the movie. i must say my view has definitely changed. effin Cuba has better health care than we do!

anyone else seen it?

i would definitely recomend it to everyone

Didn't see it, don't want to see it. Why? I hate hospitals in general and can't handle blood, needles, talk of injury, BLAH stopping now.

The problem is he praises a system that he doesn't understand, our health care system might be publicly funded, but its a mess.

Haven't seen the movie, but I get the jest of it.

I saw it when it first came out. It made me rather pissed while watching it, but after I did my own research, I found there are always 2 sides to a story.
