Kucinich starts off with the completely debunked "50 million uninsured," and then expects us to believe him when he goes spouting off unsourced statistics without letting the other guy answer the question?

For Socialized Medicine (from that DonJack1776 guy):

there was like nothing in that whole video that had anything to do with health care

There wasn't? I guess that's what happens when you don't watch it first.
My bad.

It was just basically about how liberals trust the government while conservatives don't
and that governments do work in things like health care

This video wasn't really an argument but just a statement on what donjack believes

It's just the political false dichotomy again.

I didn't post this vid because of its content
as you can see there is a guy called the theRadicalliberal in the comment section spouting Michael Moore cliches like life expectancy, infant mortality and the really dumb WHO ranking.
The WHO ranking is based on life expectancy, "fair" financing, and etc etc that has actually nothing to do with health care

http://www.photius.com/rankings/who_world_health_ranks.html

In fact the only thing that does involve health care is RESPONSIVENESS which US ranked number 1 for
http://www.photius.com/rankings/world_health_systems.html

Should I even bother responding to him?
I'm really tempted but I don't want to waste my time

not only that, his channel looks like a sock puppet.

Something interesting you might want to cover in this episode:
Many Socialized Medicine proponents will go on and on about their personal anecdotes about how cheap and fast their own healthcare was, despite wait times of about 4 months for Canada and 1 year for France (to name a few examples of wait times of systems with Socialized Medicine).
Yet what they seem to forget is that those figures are AVERAGES; meaning that it's perfectly expected that there are going to be people who get in sooner.
But what about the people on the other side of the bell curve of wait times; the ones who have to wait longer, maybe even much longer than the average to get medical care?
What about THEIR stories/anecdotes/testimony?

And by those people, I mean people who die; not just go to the USA or India for treatment...
I mean, about half as much per capita spent, but even more socialized (higher costs b/c of tragedy of the commons)?
You've gotta be kidding me.
They must have shortages like no other in these places.

Would this qualify as a good video?

He read it directly from this:  http://libertariannation.org/a/f12l3.html

Shane, what do you think of this?

Yes, and there are only a couple dozen Shriner hospitals left...many are having to cut back on services, now offering only outpatient procedures. The director has said that if this continues, there won't be any left in ten years.

This is the legacy of government health care "reforms."

I should have worded the question better.
"As a source/video for this thread, do you think this was appropriate; if so, how good was it?" would have been better.
Though it does sound like you liked it. :)

As the saying goes: "The worst words in the English Language, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
