My parents are Cuban refugees...They thought Sicko was a comedy.
What Moore failed to tell his audience is that the services the lady in the movie received were only available to her because SHE'S FOREIGN. She can afford the care and is therefore not a burden on the State. If you noticed she DID pay. Sure it was 5 American cents per scrip, plus maybe 100 or 200 bucks for the visit overall, but they didn't show that part...No, Moore wanted you to believe it's all free and better than anything in America.
This story makes me
Case in point from the article:
Castro's government apparently went on to ban the film because, the leaked cable claims, it "knows the film is a myth and does not want to risk a popular backlash by showing to Cubans facilities that are clearly not available to the vast majority of them."
I've been saying this since that stupid "documentary" came out a few years ago.edit on 18-12-2010 by projectvxn because: (no reason given)
