The favorite liberal domestic issue these days is the percentage of Americans without health insurance, and their proposed solution is government-provided universal health care. Canada, our neighbor right next door, has universal health care, and is commonly pointed to as a model we should emulate. Dead Meat, a 25 minute short film by Stuart Browning and Blaine Greenberg uses first-hand accounts to point out the inevitable drawbacks of Canadian free health care: interminable delays and rationing frequently resulting in pain and inconvenience, sometimes resulting in death. It recently premiered at the Liberty Film Festival in Los Angeles.
