Henry at Babalu recounted his good experiences with the American healthcare system and criticized Moore’s efforts:
Is our system perfect? No, of course not. Are there serious problems? You betcha. But to throw the baby out with the bath water does not seem like a reasonable solution.
In a later post on the same website, Michael Moore’s Sicko is referred to as a fantasy film.
While many might disagree with Moore’s agenda, it seems as though much of the animosity geared toward him stems from his visit to Cuba. His film is bringing public attention to where it is desperately needed, as is apparent after the death of a woman in an emergency room last month. --Lauren Papiernik
