So i was watching SiCKO today at home from my netflix account, as part of HW. It was pretty interesting. I dunno if i like or dislike Michael Moore, but it was interesting nonetheless.

Myself, I am currently uninsured. I went to the dentist two weeks ago to fix two fillings and it cost me $100.

For those unfamilar with SiCKO:

So yeah, you'll have to pay more taxes, but is it worth it?

Canada, the UK, Cuba, and France are mentioned in the movie.

Basically Universal Health Care would be free for all citizens, and non-citizens alike, just like Constitutional Rights. Sounds nice actually.

He compares health care with things which are "free" like, the library, US postal services, and the fire and police services. Taxes provide for them, why not health care?

Because health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies would lose money. But yes, I also think it would be a good thing. Hell, I'm gonna have to shell out nearly $400 to get my top two wisdom teeth pulled out and I do have insurance! It's ridiculous what people have to pay now.

I think the difference is between private and public goods. Look it up on wikipedia or something, if more information about such goods is needed.
