That is a fabulous show on Larry King live! I read about this first on a news syndication service from one of the Indian news papers by the was just took it so light and then the second day it appeared on rediff and today I found it on Michel moores’s website Larry king show courtesy YouTube. I was shocked to watch here in India of an incident involving a corporate hospital. It was involved in treating a deadbody for 36 hours making a hullo bulla of everything right from oxygen cylinders to the “call the specailist” and the final SOS and at last “curtains down” scene of “oooh we tried so hard but cudnt save him”. Isn’t that quite an Oscar winning Script n playwrite ?
Our very own Telugu super oops mega star framed the scene in his very own “Tagore” a film to fight curroption. Oops did I say corruption and whats he doing in his charitable trust nnnoo veeru hold on its not the way to go you are writing on ooh yeah Michelle mooore right carry on with that. Where was I yeaahhhh ……. perhaps the Hollywood has some lessons from Indian Doctors. Opps Michelle moore I dont know if u have some interest here in India but you have loads of such themes here too. Why dont you come over ?
It all started with
It started earlier this week, when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, who hosts the hour-long show Situation Room, turned the spotlight on Sicko, the recently-released Michael Moore documentary that takes a harsh, uncompromising look at America’s healthcare industry. (rediff.com)
It is wonderful infact at atime when the world is in turmoil (lets not go in to whats and whos) but yeah the world is disturbed and now when everybody is talking war there is somebody who cares for the Health of the average Americans and the debate is not stopping there it is going places to canada, france and more so to developing countries. I love it that is a wonderful and welcomeable debate and need of the hour.
The key point of disagreement, during the debate, revolved around Moore’s contention, in the movie, that other developed nations such as France [Images] and Canada [Images] have universal health care, and that such health care is largely free, while Americans pay exorbitant sums to underwrite their health care needs.
Dr Gupta said while patients may not pay for services at the doctor’s office, they pay high taxes to fund such a system.
Moore in response pointed out that though Americans do not pay taxes to fund a health care system, they end up paying out more by way of copays, deductibles and insurance premiums. (rediff.com)
