(Cough)

A couple of days ago, I was invited on a special “field trip” organized by Christopher’s workplace to go and see Michael Moore’s Sicko. Good film, even if it didn’t tell me much I didn’t already know — if you’re an ininsured, sick American, you’re screwed. HMOs and phamaceutical comglomerates are greedy bastards who thrive on the suffering of others. Hillary Clinton is a lightning rod for whatever cause she embraces. Michael Moore tones it down a bit more this time and the movie takes on an unexpectedly touching turn towards the end. I loved the group of American expatriots living in Paris, relaxing in a café and feeling a teensy bit guilty that the French government takes so much better care of its citizens. What a cool group of people. I want to live in Paris and not bake in 100+ degree temps.

Now if you excuse me, there’s a hot Barbara Stanwyck festival playing on TCM this Monday …

  2. What Moore neglects to mention in that scene is that 85% of French citizens purchase supplemental health insurance. I lived in Germany for 2 years and also had to purchase supplemental insurance to make sure that I was completely covered. Also, abuse and fraud of the government health system by German citizens was rampant.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not arguing that the current system of health care in the US is anything but dysfunctional, just pointing out that Moore, as usual, is not telling the full story.
