Cuban Health System

"It was just mentioned to me by our esteemed speaker, 'Did anyone say
anything about the Cuban health system?' And lemme tell ya, before you
say “Oh, it’s a commu–”, you need to go down there and see what Fidel
Castro put in place. And I want you to know, now, you can think whatever
you want to about Fidel Castro, but he was one of the brightest leaders
I have ever met. [APPLAUSE] And you know, the Cuban revolution that
kicked out the wealthy, Che Guevara did that, and then, after they took
over, they went out among the population to find someone who could lead
this new nation, and they found…well, just leave it there (laughs), an
attorney by the name of Fidel Castro…"

Oh man... I came across this video and transcript (thanks Charlie) of a congresswoman from L.A. praising the Cuban Revolution and Fidel Castro stating that he is one of the brightest leaders she's ever met and that the health system in Cuba is one that America should aspire to.

No offense lady, but have you been to a Cuban hospital? I don't mean the nice one for tourists that Michael Moore went to, I meant the "REAL" hospitals that regular every day people go to? Didn't your mother teach you not to be a Communist? Didn't you grow up in the land of opportunity? I bet you never tried to get on a raft made of tires and driftwood to sneak INTO CUBA!

Anyways... Enough said, read the transcript or watch the video and I dare ANY of you to come up with something positive to say about Watson's stance about Castro.

no, castro doesn't have special hospitals for michael moore. thought i doubt he wasn't treated specially. could you ask the united states to stop the embargo? they would appreciate and perhaps get a better living standard. perhaps if they are educated, are allowed more freedom, they will come to the realization that capitalist democracy i mean republic, because some retard told me it's not democracy it's republic. perhaps they will realize it by themselves you know? there are good educational opportunities in a communist society. and with an uncensored internet they could learn from the world. but instead, they are stuck at home. and while americans children each down get outside and sing with the flag on(obviously totalitarianism) children in cuba everyday start the day by saying that they will be like che guevara (totalitarianism also)
