    Did some research as far as taxation in the countries Moore used as examples , lots of people screaming that they are paying more because of socialized medicine.
    Here are the facts.
    Canada 15-29%(Federal)
    France 10%-48.09%
    U.K. 0-40%
    U.S.A. 0-35%
    So with these comparisons I am not sure why we can’t go to Universal healthcare. The U.S. spends twice as much as other industrialized nations on health care, $7,129 per capita. Yet our system performs poorly in comparison and still leaves 46 million without health coverage and millions more inadequately covered.

    This is because private insurance bureaucracy and paperwork consume one-third (31 percent) of every health care dollar. Streamlining payment though a single nonprofit payer would save more than $350 billion per year, enough to provide comprehensive, high-quality coverage for all Americans.

    Its a no brainer. How rich do these insurance exec’s need to be? Does the money fill the holes they have where there morals and ethics
