Admittedly, I have only seen parts of Moore's movie, Sicko.
I think he is amusing although his movies are not totally
truthful since he leaves important parts out of the equation.

I think his idea of people putting their stories about their
healthcare experiences on Youtube is a terrific idea.

I think it is horrid how people with diseases are treated by
the health insurance companies. What the H*ll are they
there for if not to help people with health coverage??
