Premonition Of Sicko
29 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first episode of the first season of The Awful Truth presents how Michael Moore shows two events.First,Ken Starr was shown how to perform a cost-effective witch hunt.Finally,a staged funeral that was presented outside Humana's corporate headquarters whose policyholder they refused a lifesaving pancreas transplant.

The second part of the show definitely was something of a premonition of Michael Moore's future documentary about healthcare and health insurance companies,Sicko.It was evident that Humana played a big part of the said documentary when former employees and policyholders of the the said company played a prominent feature in it.Also,it was one way to look at how much Americans have suffered from it and continues to do so despite the implementation of Obamacare.
