Just back from watching Sicko

Diana and I took in the movie Sicko this evening. A thought provoking film, although me being my normal skeptic self I had to do a little searching afterwards.

Wikipedia has a write up on the film as well as a write up on the controversies over it.

The thing that struck me the most about all of it was when they talked about the cost of a treatment. A person would say, "It costs $24K in the US, but it's free here." That maybe true from a patient out of pocket situation, but it costs someone something somewhere.
