Documentary look at health care in the United States as provided by profit-oriented health maintenance organizations (HMOs) compared to free, universal care in Canada, the U.K., and France. Moore contrasts U.S. media reports on Canadian care with the experiences of Canadians in hospitals and clinics there. He interviews patients and doctors in the U.K. about cost, quality, and salaries. He examines why Nixon promoted HMOs in 1971, and why the Clintons' reform effort failed in the 1990s. He talks to U.S. ex-pats in Paris about French services, and he takes three 9/11 clean-up volunteers, who developed respiratory problems, to Cuba for care.

    after seeing this documentary, i think human's right watch sould go to america....at least in my country health is equally offered to everyone, even if it takes time. i think the difference between usa and europe is that here we still care about others, and are most of the times happy to help others. isn't a medical quote : never deny health care to those in need???!??! god bless europe!!
