If you ever need to get riled up go listen to Michael Moore speak. I had the opportunity today and it was phenomenal. Now if we can get him to take up the incarceration issue.....The Denver Post
DENVER – Filmmaker Michael Moore spoke at a rally on the west steps of the State Capitol Sunday evening. His visit coincides will the run-up to his new movie, "Sicko," which lashes out at the health care system in America.
"We won't even say the children, the children have a right to see a doctor when they get sick and not have to worry about paying for it," Moore said to the crowd of hundreds.
Moore suggests a single-payer health care system, which would essentially create a state-run system that would provide universal coverage. He points to Canada as a good example of such a system.
Like in "Bowling for Columbine" and "Fahrenheit 911," Moore uses personal stories in "Sicko" to help make his point. In fact, he uses the personal story of Donna and Larry Smith, an Aurora couple that filed for bankruptcy under the weight of medical bills.
"So we just had a series of health related crises that just kept taking us down further and further," said Donna Smith, who also spoke at the rally and introduced Moore.
