    although I didn't think Michael Moore performed his best considering the onslaught of sophistry thrown at his face by Dr. Gupta, the good doctor came away as a patronizing asshole too.

    "Free healthcare" is a synonym for "universal healthcare"--the vast majority of people understand that the idea behind "free" is that you don't have to pay for your medical care out of pocket when you go to seek treatment. It's paid through collective taxation, and people understand that--what people like Dr. Gupta and other Pharma allies try to do is confuse people into thinking that a single payer plan would cripple people with taxes because they would have to pay them in addition to the premiums, co pays, and whatevr else they are already paying.

    If we move to a socialist system the taxes we will pay to keep our National Healthcare going will be LOWER than what we are paying for private insurance. Socialized medicine means more money in the pockets of Americans--even moreso if you make the tax progressive.
