Knee-Jerk Reaction (Get it?, What the Doctor Does)
Bill, if you had actually taken the time to analyze Michael Moore's documentary, you'd realize that he ISN'T in fact talking about the 47 million uninsured. He's talking about the people who DO HAVE insurance and despite the fact that they DO HAVE insurance are still getting reamed with co-pays, deductibles, pay-roll deductions, refusals, policy cancellations, preexisting condition clauses, etc.. Getting reamed, in other words, by this great health care system that you say the 85% of the people who have insurance are happy with............I mean, don't get me wrong here. Michael Moore undoubtedly IS a propagandist - whose facts, anecdotes, proposed solutions, etc. are not the type that I'm necessarily going to hang my hat on, either. But, I'm saying, at least the guy is bringing to the forefront a serious issue here. This, as opposed to you guys at Fox - whose heads always seem to be buried in the sand, subject to the winds of the powerful, etc..
