Gore: Universal Health Care a 'Right'

     Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore’s celebration weekend in Tennessee wasn’t all dinner and dancing.

 

     The former vice president managed to find time this past weekend to post a series of videos on his peer-to-peer video sharing site, Current.tv – including one calling for “government-funded” health care. Gore is chairman of Current.tv.

     Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore’s celebration weekend in Tennessee wasn’t all dinner and dancing.

 

     The former vice president managed to find time this past weekend to post a series of videos on his peer-to-peer video sharing site, Current.tv – including one calling for “government-funded” health care. Gore is chairman of Current.tv.

 

     In a setting reminiscent of a bored college student making a video in his dorm room, Gore is shown proclaiming that healthcare in America “ought to be a matter of right,” addressing what he thinks to be an “immoral” healthcare situation.

 

     “I strongly support universal single-payer government-provided or government-funded health care” droned a languid Gore in his video, now also listed under the title ‘Gore Goes SiCKO’ on Michael Moore’s Web site.

     Moore has used his movie to promote a crusade to mandate universal care. The Business & Media Institute revealed in a June article the flaws in Moore’s ‘SiCKO’ and the gushing media coverage it had received from the media.

 

     Gore puts that media support to shame. Since the release of his documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” in early 2006, media coverage has given him almost rock star status. On October 10, BMI warned of Gore’s lack of willingness to enter into a debate on global warming. Also, in an October 12 article, BMI detailed the extent to which the success Gore has enjoyed has been a result of media endorsement.

 

     Though still not a 2008 Presidential candidate, Gore’s other two videos focused on the recent hot topics of troop withdrawal and increased protection for Americans against invasion of privacy by the Executive Branch.

 

     All three of the former vice president’s recent videos, averaging around a minute each, appear to have been posted by Gore himself and serve as further examples of just how far left his positions are.
