What are the possible solutions presented in the movie? The Government taking over the system and providing care for all.

How do “politics” play a role in problem definition? How do politics play a role in Moore’s movie? Politics play a role in many of the social problems facing our country. Our healthcare system is being worked on as we speak.

Is Moore’s movie a solid, professional analysis of the issue? Or a weak, biased one? Michael Moore is entitled to his own opinions and views. The film Sicko was more an editorial account from Michael Moore’s point of view, than it was an objective look at the facts regarding Amerian Healthcare.

If you had to make a film on Healthcare would you take the same approach? Why or why not? I respect Michael Moore but would approach this issue from an analytical perspective, filled with measurable facts that can be verified.
