While people like Hillary Clinton would have you believe that government health care is the wave of the future, the truth is quite different. John Stossel takes us through the health care systems of countries that have implemented government run health care systems in this 20/20 special Sick in America. He interviews Michael Moore about his claims in Sicko and takes us through some real world examples of people who are being screwed. Should your health care be tied to your employer?
I personally find the employer tied health care system to be the worst of things for most people in this day and age. When you lose your job you're not just losing your paycheck, you are losing your health care insurance as well. What have we as Americans gotten ourselves into? Is it the greedy insurance companies? Is it the greedy doctors? Is it the complacent people who don't want to take the time to shop around? All of this is explored in the videos below along with a glimpse of what health care could and should be.
