The Cuban dissident, Dr. Ferrer, who took this footage risked his life and is currently in jail not far from Gitmo, but in slightly different conditions. Gitmo would be a resort for this poor man.
"The Castroite propaganda in Sicko so outraged people cursed by fate to live in Castro's fiefdom that they risked their lives by using hidden cameras to film conditions in genuine Cuban hospitals, hoping they could alert the world to Moore's swinishness as a propaganda operative for a Stalinist regime.
At enormous risk, two hours of shocking, often revolting, footage was obtained with tiny hidden cameras and smuggled out of Cuba to Cuban-exile George Utset, who runs the superb and revelatory website The Real Cuba. The man who assumed most of the risk during the filming and smuggling was Cuban dissident -- a medical doctor himself – Dr. Darsi Ferrer, who was also willing to talk on camera, narrating much of the video's revelations. Dr Ferrer worked in these genuinely Cuban hospitals daily, witnessing the truth. More importantly, he wasn't cowed from revealing this truth to America and the world. (A recent samizdat reports that the black Dr. Ferrer is currently languishing in a Cuban prison cell --not far from Gitmo, by the way-- undergoing frequent beatings."
The system in Cuba's communist utopia is a nightmare for the regular people. Yet, our 'betters' want to model a U.S. system based on the supposedly "fair" system in places like Cuba, Canada, and the UK.
Is this the future for America under Obama Care?
There are MUCH worse photos of actual conditions in Cuba at The Real Cuba website.
Even in the U.K., an obviously much freer and not evil society, conditions in the socialist run health care system approach nightmare stage (patients having to have family members clean their rooms, bring them water, and even a man dying from dehydration in the hospital!).
Our system is far from perfect, but it is Utopia in comparison to Cuba. "Free" is never truly free. There are always costs and consequences.
