From a PSL review of Sicko, on Michael Moore taking 9/11 rescue workers to Cuba after they were repeatedly denied treatment in the US.
Reggie Cervantes, who has suffered from a pulmonary condition since 9/11, purchases the same medicine for five cents that would cost $120 here.
The right wing has been quick to call the Cuba visit a cheap trick. They say the Cuban government just put on a show for Moore because a camera team from the United States was present. The rescue workers have asserted otherwise. Cervantes, who speaks Spanish, claims she snuck out of the hospital and readmitted herself to see if she would be treated differently as a Cuban off the street. She received the same treatment.
