Moore takes his message to DC...

Democratic Rep. John Conyers Jr. of Michigan was among lawmakers who joined filmmaker Michael Moore for a rally on Capitol Hill.
Moore's new film "SiCKO" is an indictment of the health insurance system in America. Moore, along with a movement of nurses and doctors, have been rallying around the film and are using it to pressure politicians and citizens to take a stance.
The effort to smear Moore by the insurance companies has already begun. I expect the filmmaker will fight back. Maybe we'll have an interesting debate on health care in the United States.
