I am very disturbed after watching a documentary produced by Michael Moore, called "SICKO". It is a documentary on health care in the United States compared to other countries. Other countries have free health care, but for some reason in the U.S. our government feels that government controlled health care will not work. In the U.S. the pharmaceutical companies are making millions off of the system and I am positive they are lining our politicians pockets. In this documentary Michael Moore has several conversations with citizens and Doctors from other countries such as France, Canada, and Britain and they do not have anything bad to say about their medical system. I'm beside myself, the U.S. is supposed to be the most powerful country in the world and we can not even take care of our elderly and the sick. Our government is more concerned about being the world's police than taking care of it's own people. We are always involved in several conflicts between other countries, spending trillions of dollars on foreign affairs but we do not have room in our budget for medical insurance in our own country? The U.S. government outlook on foreign affairs is that we have to spend the money and fight conflicts in other country's so we do not have to fight terrorists in our country. We have plenty of bloodshed (crime) between citizens in our own country due to the stress levels that are upon us from the way our government runs our country. I hear stories of the elderly citizens that can not afford medicine in the U.S. so they travel to Canada or Mexico to get medicines that they can afford. The FDA in the states and the Pharmaceutical companies are making the cost of medicines so outrageous, we have to go without or go else where to get them. I have watched other films by Michael Moore and do not necessarily agree with all his thoughts and opinions, however this one I actually find myself on the same page as him. I never have been a big fan of Michael Moore and sometimes even did not personally like him, so before watching this film I found myself having a prejudice against it, I even questioned my wife why she even bought such a film. I do not follow politics very closely and do not generally consider myself a Republican or a Democrat, as I find all politicians to make promises they do not hold. I hear stress levels are much lower in other countries than here in the U.S. because we work more hours, which I do not understand if we work so many hours why our economy is declining. This site is the only site I have been apart of where I have communicated with people from other parts of the world. I am just wondering what your outlook is as far health care and government is in the U.S. and other countries. My belief is in the U.S. there is alot of room for improvements.
