The issue of healthcare in America goes far beyond a line in the budget. It reaches into the center of the American soul and answers the question, “How in the world do we want to treat each other?”
In Canada, healthcare is regarded as a social service, and treated as a responsibility of the government, to be provided to every citizen.
Not so in the United States. In America, health care is regarded as a profit-making commodity, to be operated for the financial gain of insurance and pharmaceutical companies, doctors and hospitals.
This documentary considers how it came to be that the two systems ended up in such different places. It explores the health care system in Canada: how it came to be, how it works for ordinary Canadians, how it is paid for, and how it compares to its American counterpart.
This 65 minute documentary is narrated by Kiefer Sutherland, learn more at HealthcareMovie.net
