Michael Moore: The Obamacare We Deserve
Documentary filmmaker and liberal icon Michael Moore came right out and said what all natural medicine advocates can see: Obamacare is an awful healthcare system! It’s a step in the right direction of making healthcare available to all Americans, as it should be in a country that aspires to call itself a global leader, but the one-way money deluge towards drug companies and the insurance industry is unacceptable.
As Moore points out in his Dec. 31 New York Times op-ed, “The Affordable Care Act is a pro-insurance-industry plan implemented by a president who knew in his heart that a single-payer, Medicare-for-all model was the true way to go.”
But at least it’s a start we can build on, in which the state of Vermont has taken the lead. “All eyes are on Vermont’s plan for a single-payer system, starting in 2017,” says Moore. “If it flies, it will change everything, with many states sure to follow suit by setting up their own versions. That’s why corporate money will soon flood into Vermont to crush it. The legislators who’ll go to the mat for this will need all the support they can get: If you live east of the Mississippi, look up the bus schedule to Montpelier.”
