    We were talking about this a few weeks back. The email I recieved said John Stossell sp got fired for airing this. Don't know if that's true but it sure gives the other side of the Michael Moore view on Health Care reform</P>

      Yes, I was following John Stossel on twitter over the summer when his segment on healthcare was continually pushed back and back and back.....coincedentally, he then joined Fox News.

          You had mentioned AG to take Moore with a grain of salt. Good advice. Not that he had meconvinced on his views on anything in his movies. Theres always 2 sides to every story. Imo he went over the top [quite a few times] in the health care movie but the Cuba stuff was like some Hollywood version of things as they are</P>


          So Stossel did get canned or he quit?</P>

            The official explanation is that after 20+ years or whatever it was, it was time for him to move on. That's the soft response.

            The entire healthcare debate was pretty heated during the summer and his viewpoint just didn't go well with ABC. Anyone with any talent eventually goes to Foxnews. I hate to say it but it's true. Glenn Beck was on CNN and basically was a nobody there. They didn't want his opinions to be too loud, so he transferred to Foxnews and now he's practically a rock star over there. His show alone has given the white house grief and taken down some of the people there like Van Jones.

            Now, wait for John Stossel to warm up!!! He's on deck....

                Well imo when things started to heat up on the debate it's all more reason for ABC to stand behind Stossel. He always struck me as one of those guys who sticks up for the regular people. ABC's loss but it sure makes you wonder who they were afraid to offend with his report. As if we don't already know. Good , let Stossel really open up on FOX ,can't wait to see it

                  BW all though I was not personally involved with any of the debates down here in the States Many , many are dead set against it No way as some say. I don't know enough about Canada's health care system to comment on it but between the Michael Moore's movie on health care and John Stossel's report there seems to be a huge division on what is actually true and what is not....thus the discussion.
                  Moore depicting Cuba as the place to be for health care was a joke imo Castro's merry band of sycophants would do anything to make us look bad

                    i haven't seen the MM movie but i can say if he is saying Canada has a pretty good (not perfect)system than that is closer to the truth than that video....30 plus million people up here and they find what 4 who had issues and 1 one of those issues was he didn't get a private room. lol</P>

                      good god that video is ridiculous

                      so we are waiting an average of 23 hours now in emergency? whatever....maybe if you show up with the sniffles you will. I love when they pick the doctors that are wanting to be able to charge more money to comment on the system....well if he hates it here go to the States where he can pay 100-200,000 in malpractice insurance a year too. If that lady was life threatened her operation would have been covered, the actress comment about high tech facilities didn't go to the hospital if I remember correct and she was staying in the mountains, of course there was no high tech around...if she'd gone straight to Montreal instead of saying she was fine she'd have had access to it all....makes you wonder how Sonny Bono died of a skiing accident with all the high tech facilities in the mountains down in the U.S. what a crock of **** that was

                      this is still the best John Stossel video imo

                        Oh man..... Stossel should have done a better job investigating the effects of "roid rage" before interviewing that guy......ssssshhh....you would think he would have known better but I guess not lol

                          AG seems very well informed on this issue and Moore. He has mentioned to take MMs view points with a grain of salt...... whats that old saying about extremes..............MM vs Stossel as example....the truth usually lies somewhere in the middle , something like that

                              on the serious side..i did read an article about the cost of having a baby in the US and that figure was around $17,000..man you think of that # than you think of those reality shows such as John &amp; Kate plus 8 and 18 and growing and you think how do they afford 18... the bill is equal to a house!</P>


                              and an FYI.. not advisable togooglethe phrase "18 and growing"..[:|]</P>

                                This is very true. Which is why it's important that no matter what side you feel you're on, it's good to do a little background work. I know which side I prefer, but it still doesn't blind me from making sure it's the right decision.

                                Also, you have to realize, you can't compare Canada to USA. You have to look at the ratio of people in the U.S. and doctors to the ratio of Canadians to doctors. The US has 307 million people. Canada has 30 million.

                                NYC alone is 1/3 the population of CANADA!!! So it's a bit more managable when your population is less.

                                Now, let's take this further and open your eyes a bit. So some Canadians like their healthcare system, that's fine, I respect that. (bansaw)

                                With 307 million Americans, do we limit baby births? Nope....so we stand here all high and mighty that we believe in the freedom to create babies right?

                                We belittle China for controlling newborns to 1 child per family. But China has 1.5BILLION people.
                                Not 307 million, but 1.5 billion.....

                                I would love to see America with 1.5 billion citizens, now tell me if you won't see a new law passed to control births!!!

                                So what I'm getting at is you have to look at each countries own issues and situation.....
