I was born sick as a baby, deadly sick. Because of some insurance crap I was turned away from hospitals. My mom had to keep going to the hospital asking the doctors to vouch for her that I needed to be in there, all of them agreed that I needed to be there. It's quite fucking sad when a kid is about to die and because something about insurance they're turned away isn't it?
Did you bother to even fully watch the movie and hear about the real life stories in it? People actually got turned away and left to die! One guy in the movie told his insurance company he was going to inform Michael Moore about how shitty his service was, and funnily enough they "randomly" decided to go "ok yea you can use your money to get your daughter surgery" basically...
Most people that hate this movie won't truely understand until they really get fucked up later on in life and they're looking at a bill, also what that lady said in that youtube you posted made me sick. "I don't even think I paid haha", dumb bitch basically just avoiding paying those hard working doctors.
I smell more BS because it is illegal for them to turn you away if you truly need help unless you were born before 1886 when the law was madehttp://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/Insur...RoomRights.aspxWhen you're injured and in the emergency room, the last thing you want to have to do is fight for treatment. Fortunately, a federal law passed in 1986 to prohibit a practice commonly known as "patient dumping" gives you the right to emergency care regardless of your ability to pay. The federal law applies to hospitals that participate in Medicare -- and that includes most hospitals in the United States. However, the patient-dumping law does not give you carte blanche.
Are you meaning to tell me that all the stories in the movie and that I'm a liar only for you to feel right? Watch the movie fully next time and stop believing that everyone has it equal in this world before declaring it bullshit next time and looking for an argument or you will just basically be another Colbert. When you're immediately about to die they're not going to say "go away" but if you're dying
(as in months) they will.
I state facts (provided a link even)
Fact: It is illegal for them to not treat you meaning you have to be treated.
You might be stating "facts", but I'm stating real life events
based off of my own
personal experiences and others.
You sound like a ultra liberal elitist out of touch with the law (and reality) that will twist the truth to reach your twisted goal.
By stating real life events? Wow, get off your high horse and listen why don't you instead of denying it to only make you feel right...
I pay more that enough in taxes to pay for all these freeloading bastards that are unwilling to pay for their hospital bills. I refuse to pay more!
You stated that those people make you sick, well they make me sick too but by backing Moore and those freaks don't you see that you and I will be paying more in taxes to cover them?
Yea you'd rather the federal gov't send us to another recession printing out more and more money for stupid things that don't work(war, no child left behind etc etc) rather than giving it to people than people that could use it? I'm not saying let's just go totally free because then things would be crazy but I'm saying lets make it more reasonable rather more than money issues. If you bothered to watch the movie you'd see a family that had well enough money for an operation and a donner for it but because their insurance company refused to give them their own money they pay to them monthly the man was just left to die....Yea that might be a world you want to live in but that sounds scary to me.This is reality, this is America. Home of the thieves..
I have a decent job and for every one of those people that feel the government owes them free health care I say get the hell out!
Go to those other countries you love so much and leave us workers alone.
They deserve to be treated like human beings and not anything lower. You may think you live in an ideal America but you will one day see how fucked up this country truly is.
