The health care systems of many countries (especially Cuba) are more fair and generally superior to that of the USA - where privatisation means 18,000 unnecessary deaths each year. In France, for example, the power of mass protest ensures a fairer system.

Good movie. Research indicates that the vast majority of the facts stated are correct. It is interesting that the corporate news media wants to discredit these facts and can not.



All American Citizens should have the same health care that our federal representatives and appointees receive.



All American Citizens need to find out how much money our representatives are receiving from the health care organizations and take action to fire them by voting them out of office. It would only take a couple of elections before those running for public office got the idea that to take money and favors from lobbyist is a death sentence for being in office. In fact there should be a law that when a public official is caught, he is given a tribunal on the facts within months of their surfacing, and if found guilty, should be immediately removed for office will loss of all benefits. That I believe would be a step in cleaning up the government and the present corrupt health care system.

Thank you Simon.
Pretty interesting that Ms. Clinton gets the MOST payola/bribery/graft/"donations" from the "Health""Insurance" Industry. Guess she scared them when she even hinted mildly at "reforming" them during Bill Clinton's term as President. It starts to look almost as if that was a shakedown; losing on purpose!
Why can't we be as ready to protest as the FRENCH??? Why? Because the FRENCH have a TRADITION of SOCIALISM {oooooooh!}, and are not AFRAID of that WORD, "Socialized Medicine", as brainwashed Americans have been CONDITIONED to be. "SOCIALISM", boogah-boogah, "SOCIALISM"! Maybe we just might GET OVER OUR FEAR of it!!!!!

"Many promoters of health-care reform believe that people have an intrinsic ethical right to health care—to equal access to doctors, medicines and hospitals. While all of us empathize with those who are sick, how can we say that all people have more of an intrinsic right to health care than they have to food or shelter? Health care is a service that we all need, but just like food and shelter it is best provided through voluntary and mutually beneficial market exchanges. A careful reading of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution will not reveal any intrinsic right to health care, food or shelter. That's because there isn't any. This "right" has never existed in America."

The U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights says that we have the right to food, shelter, health care and other things necessary to life.

Many people cannot exchange anything: people who are babies, young children, old people, people with mental illness, people with physical illness, people who can't get a job, etc.. Therefore we human beings created social security, welfare, compassion and solidarity. Only fascists refuse to support this.
