My brother in law is in town this week, and as is usually the case, he came with propaganda. Last night, we watched the Michael Moore movie, Sicko. Overall, it wasn’t bad – but there were a few things that bugged me. First, a lot of the movie talks about European healthcare. During which, Michael Moore always uses the term “free”. Free healthcare, free meds, free surgery! FREE FREE FREE. The truth is - it is not free. It costs money. It has to come from somewhere. That somewhere is usually taxes. The other thing that bothered me was the way that Moore never gives the other side a rebuttal. It was pretty much 100% all him. And, I suppose, it is his movie…..
So, I agree with the fact that our healthcare could probably use some government help. However, don’t try to feed me bull that people in Europe don’t have 50% taxes.
