Jessie Chen Hardball with Chris Matthews Air Date: 7/23/2007 Guest: Michael Moore Topic: Moore’s new documentary Sicko . The controversy regarding healthcare in America. At the start of the show, Chris Matthews started attacking Michael Moore about the opinions expressed in his documentary. Matthews didn’t seem to welcoming to Moore, and he starts arguing with Moore when Moore was trying to express his point. Michael Moore gets sweaty and stutters when he talks and kind of shows his lack of confidence in what he says or he might actually be a bit intimidated by Chris Matthews. Michael Moore is the proponent of universal health care, and talks about his support for Hillary Clinton as a 2008 presidential candidate, because he says when she was the first lady she actually brought up the issue, but the excessive lobbying by the pharmaceuticals and health insurances. However, Moore makes himself seem like too much of the good guy because he talks about how “wealthy” people such as himself are able to afford health plans and coverage, but he worries about the people that can’t pay for it. Moore defends against his support for universal healthcare as it is not socialized
