sicko is a overly biased film, how can you use a film by michael moore who is one of the most left winged people out there as a barometer of actuality. no i don't think so, try again, sicko is a propaganda piece.

Also, whilst it's true that the US is more obese than much of Europe as an average, it is less so than say Scotland, which still pays a third of what you do, and still has higher life expectancy.

Furthermore still, lower life expectancy actually lowers the cost of healthcare as the largest drain on healthcare resources are not the overweight, or even the smokers or cancer patients.

It is the elderly.




Furthermore still, even if you did somehow prove that universal healthcare is better than our system you would have only proved that a corporative system is worse than universal healthcare. So no one can look at our system and say that the free market is worse then a universal system in healthcare because we don`t have one. So Americans having a low life expectancy and high costs does NOTHING against what I said.

Here`s your 4th option.
4. Ignore me

Not only are we corporatized, but we're also partially socialized. We have medicare and medicaid which subsidizes the use of these products and services.

To anyone who thinks that America has a free market system in healthcare, just know that we can't even buy insurance policies outside of our home state.

Someone TRY and defend that.
