“Sicko” Presents False View of Cuba’s Health System

Our Ryan Balis compares the reality of the Cuban health care system with the way it is portrayed in Michael Moore’s movie, “Sicko.”

Says Ryan: “The film’s underlying push is to, in Moore’s words, ‘ignite a fire for free, universal health care.’ When this premise is examined, the rosy myth of socialized medicine’s achievement in Cuba is crushed.”
