What is the real solution, if Michael Moore’s government sponsored universal health care is not the answer?

The crux of the "SICKO" documentary is the disconnect between our expectations and the reality of health care. We are expecting compassionate care from another human being, and instead we get a faceless corporation. The person behind the desk or window is an agent of a health care corporation, which is not a human being, whose primary goal is to increase corporate profit.

This is America, and corporate profit is good, the profit motive forming the basis America’s greatness. The basic problem is that a corporation is not a human being. Therein lies the fallacy of replacing a corporation with a government agency, neither of which is a human being, when what we really want is a human being to deliver compassionate health care, and assist in serious health care decisions.

Dr. Dach,

I think you've missed it slightly. What we want is FREE healthcare, even if it's provided by a faceless government agency.

I don't expect the police to be compassionate towards me, but I also don't expect to have to pay to call 911.

For many of us, if it's not free, we can't pay for treatment, so we put it off until it's an emergency, which ends up costing everyone more in the end. It's really that simple.
