    It was too bad for Mr. Reagan that the American people overwhelming favored the imposition of what he labeled Socialism and too bad that 72% of their duly elected Senators and Representatives voted contrary to Mr. Reagan's wishes and too bad Mr. Reagan chose to stand on the wrong side of history on the question of federal health insurance for the elderly and for poor families.

    However, we need to remember that Mr. Reagan eventually saw the light and converted to Socialism when he was President. He not only saved, but expanded, the American system of Social Insurance when he could have killed it. He also expanded income redistribution and became a staunch defender of what he once vilified as Socialized Medicine.

    Nope. You're wrong.

    The people who oppose the type of socialism we have in the U. S. are the ones who want to destroy our country.

    Socialism is one of the many things that makes us such a great nation. Americans love the American brand of Socialism.

    Even the great Ronald Reagan saw the light, repented his economic sins and became a Socialist. As the Chief Magistrate of our Grand and Glorious Secular Socialist Democratic Republic, he signed bills in 1984 and 1986 which more than doubled the redistribution of income from the rich to the poor. He was also a staunch defender of the right to bear arms, which was a demand of the Socialists.

    Welcome to MichaelMoore.com
    iceman, I can hardly believe that you're a fan of Michael Moore. If the Canadian medical system is so good, why have they been coming to the U. S. for their medical care, even when they have to pay out-of-pocket for said care? Are you aware that a Canadian can not pay for an MRI for themselves or a relative but can get one for a pet, if they can afford the out-of-pocket cost? What is wrong with this picture? Are you aware that the wait in the U.K. AND Canada, where socialized medicine has deep roots, for a patient to see a specialist can be 6 months to a year? Are you aware that in the U.K., if a patient has macular degeneration, they have to go blind in one eye before the government will pay for treatment to the remaining eye? Do we REALLY want that quality (?) of healthcare here? And this MYTH that the poor can't get medical care in this country is maddening. Hospitals, by law, have to accept charity patients and can not refuse anyone medical treatment. There are FREE medical clinics everywhere! IF there are some unfortunate folks who do not have access to medical care due to inability to pay, it is such a small percentage that it flies in the face of reason why our entire medical system should be overhauled for THEIR benefit, when 300 million U.S. citizens are currently being well cared for.

    If Michael Moore truly believes that the Cuban healthcare system is so great, why doesn't he put his actions where his mouth is and move there for a few years. I'd be willing to bet that he'd be singing a different tune after THAT experience!

    Charles, are you a government infiltrator? Sounds, to me, that you just may be on Obama's payroll!

    When I opposed Medicare, there was another piece of legislation meeting the same problem before the Congress. I happened to favor the other piece of legislation and thought that it would be better for the senior citizens and provide better care than the one that was finally passed. I was not opposing the principle of providing care for them. I was opposing one piece of legislation versus another.
