So health care is a pretty hot topic right now, as it should be, and Michael Moore is in the thick of it all thanks to his new movie, Sicko. There’s a pretty funny interview of him on the Colbert Report here. So thats great and all, but then someone passed along this clip from our good friends over at Fox News:
Now this is getting ri-goddamn-diculous. Once Fox News starts airing pieces linking socialized medicine to terrorism, I’d say its time to question all the anti-universal health care bullshit thats out there. Or I guess you could just stop watching Fox News, even though its so damn entertaining.
In terms of Michael Moore, I saw and enjoyed Sicko. I don’t think he’s perfect by any means, but I think its crazy how quick people are to hate on the guy and his work. The bottom line is that when all is said and done, I think Moore is going to be able to look back on his life and say that within his line of work, he tried to do some good for his community and country. How many of us can say that about ourselves?
He’s supporting a universal health care bill thats in the works in California right now called SB840, and it looks pretty solid to me. Should be interesting to see what happens, because it seems like all eyes are on Cali in regards to how the Golden State handles the health care issue.
