Under a single-payer, government underwritten healthcare insurance program, the younger and healthier will pay more than zero, and the ill folks will pay less than a fortune. That's what insurance is all about, isn't it. This is the theme of Sicko, presented with a flare that only Michael Moore knows how to ignite, all for a good cause!

Hey Perry: Do you believe Americans should have the right to choose their own doctor and pay over and above any "single payer" payment for medical treatment if they so desired?

Of course, Hube, which is basically the way Medicare works. Implicit in your question is the requirement for a definition of just what constitutes the basic health care for which everyone needs to have access to by virtue of affordable insurance premiums.

Michael Moore is big fat slug that uses one sided, non facutal, chauvinistic rehtoric in search of truth -- he makes money at. Don't waste yours going to see SICKO.
