See Sicko and Win Trip to Europe/Canada

by # Friday, Jul. 20, 2007 at 5:03 PM

Sicko, the outstanding movie exposing the bankrupt US healthcare system and supporting single payer healthcare a la Canada, Britain, France and Cuba, is now playing at 500 more movie theaters and director Michael Moore promises you a trip to Europe or Canada if you see Sicko this weekend, July 20-22, 2007.

Sicko, the outstanding movie exposing the bankrupt US healthcare system and supporting single payer healthcare a la Canada, Britain, France and Cuba, is now playing at 500 more movie theaters and director Michael Moore promises you a trip to Europe or Canada if you see Sicko this weekend, July 20-22, 2007.

The deal is described at
http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/message/index.php?id=218
and is quoted here:
"And, to show my thanks to all of you who'll go see "Sicko" this weekend, I'm going to send one of you and a guest on a free weekend to the universal health care country of your choice! That's right. You'll get to pick one of the three industrialized countries featured in the movie where, if you get sick, you get help for free, no matter who you are. All you have to do is send us your ticket stub (make sure it says "Sicko" on it and has the name of the theater and this weekend's date on it -- Friday, Saturday or Sunday - July 20th, 21st, 22nd). Attach the stub to a piece of paper with your name, address, phone number and email and send it to: 'Sicko' Night in America, 888c 8th Avenue, Suite 443, New York, NY 10019. (Yes, you have to use that old 18th century device called the U.S. Postal Service, and it has to be postmarked on or by Tuesday, July 24th). First prize is a weekend in the city of your choice: Paris, London or Toronto. This includes airfare, hotel, meals and, most exciting, a representative from their fine universal health care system who will give you a personal tour so you can see how they treat their fellow citizens. You'll meet people who pay nothing for college and citizens who are in the fourth week of their six-week paid vacation. Oh, and you'll have time to see the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben or whatever they have in Toronto that is old and tall. (If you don't have a passport, we'll pay for that, too!) "

To find where Sicko is playing near you, type your Zip Code at:
http://www.sickotix.com/
or
http://www.mrmovietimes.com

When you get done seeing the movie, please help us pass single payer bills, such as HR 676, about which you can learn and act upon at:
http://www.pnhp.org/publications/the_national_health_insurance_bill_hr_676.php
You can also send an Email to your federal representatives to support HR676 from Michael Moore's website at:
http://www.michaelmoore.com/sicko/what-can-i-do/petitions/pnum649.php

In California, we have SB 840, which is more fully described at
http://singlepayernow.net/sb840/
and you can send an Email to your state representatives to support SB840 from Michael Moore's website at:
http://www.michaelmoore.com/sicko/what-can-i-do/petitions/pnum651.php

Michael Moore also has lots of other good suggestions on what you can do, and your participation is urgently needed now to put an end to the insurance company, HMO and drug company murder and profiteering system they claim is health care. See:
http://www.michaelmoore.com/sicko/what-can-i-do/

Michael Moore's very simple prescription for improving healthcare in the USA may be found at
http://www.michaelmoore.com/sicko/health-care-proposal/
and is as follows:
1. Every resident of the United States must have free universal healthcare for life.
2. All health insurance companies must be abolished.
3. Pharmaceutical companies must be strictly regulated, like a utility.
(To that, one can add, the drug companies should be nationalized.)

If you prefer, you can also write letters to your federal and state legislators, and YOUR LETTERS ARE NEEDED NOW TO SUPPORT HR 676.
For the federal government, find your senators and representatives at:
http://www.senate.gov/ (and then at the top right, Find Your Senators with the drop box. We have 2 senators per state.)
and
http://www.house.gov/writerep/ (We have 1 representative for every 500,000 people).

In California, to support SB840, find your senators and assemblypersons, using your Zip Code, at:
http://www.legislature.ca.gov/port-zipsearch.html

LET'S PASS ALL THE SINGLE PAYER LEGISLATION PENDING ACROSS THE NATION AND IN CONGRESS THIS YEAR, WITH ENOUGH VOTES TO OVERRIDE ANY GOVERNOR'S OR PRESIDENT'S VETO. Remember, we are 300 million people living in the US, and there are only 50 governors and 1 president. AND SEE SICKO THIS WEEKEND. It is just the medicine we all need to change this country from being 37th in health care to being NUMBER ONE IN HEALTHCARE.
