Checking your premises on Universal Health Care

I recently watched Michael Moore's movie "Sicko."

Most people I know who saw it thought it was a great wake up call. I thought it was quite disengenuous. Michael Moore is learning how to master the art of 'smoke and mirrors' and he does a good job at it, but that doesn't mean he understands anything better than anyone else.

I liked this article about Universal Health Care:

Check Your Premises

Michael Moore likes to pin the blame for the failures of the U.S. Health Care on the free market. Trouble is - there is no free market. The article talks about what health care was like when there was more of a free-market. Not perfect, but a lot better than the universal health care provided in other countries today.
