Nationalized Health Care--Again?

The Socialists are getting itchy again...

At the end of a long, damning post on Michael Moore, Says Uncle mentions a movie that Moore is working on that attacks the US health care industry:
Mark Twain used to say there were three kind of lies. Lies, damned lies, and statistics. When it comes to Michael Moore there are five kind of lies. Kay S. Hymowitz wrote an excellent article, “Michael Moore, Humbug” that digs deep down into the muck and deceit that is Michael Moore. Hymowitz wrote, “the five Michael Moore lies are, bold-faced lies, lies of omission, artistic lies, slanted insinuating lies, and lies of exaggeration.”

You might ask why should we care?

We should care because Michael Moore’s next project may involve each and every one of us in Tennessee. The film “Sicko” is Michael Moore’s next project and sadly TennCare may be a focal part of this film. At this point it is not clear how much focus will be on TennCare. A thirty-minute documentary on TennCare has recently caused concern by a few observant people. At the end of this documentary when the credits run there is a credit for Michael Moore. What is the credit for? Was Michael Moore a consultant on this documentary?

Will “Sicko” be just another Michael Moore attack on the drugs companies or will it be a push for socialized medicine? What role will TennCare have in this new film? Most importantly, will the people of Tennessee be fairly portrayed in this film?

Someone’s pushing for nationalized health care…ABC News is promoting a report by the late Peter Jennings on the state of the nation’s health insurance system--the last piece he did before he passed away.

Is Bush going to try for nationalized health care? With the Republicans blindly following the Prez through whatever unconstitutional treachery he so decides to enact, and the Dems fully willing to nationalize anything they can see, it would be a good time to do so.

Ugly scenario: Hillary and Bush in a loose but unholy alliance for nationalized health care.


I hope I’m wrong, but I’ll be looking into expatriation anyway, just in case.
