Recently Michael Moore contacted ailing responders to the cleanup project at Ground Zero at the World Trade Center in order to offer them medical treatment in the health care system in Cuba. His most recent sleight of hand stunt is designed to illustrate the superiority of medical care in the island "workers paradise" of Cuba as compared to the U.S.
There is little doubt that foreigners can receive decent medical care in Cuba if they are prepared to pay for it with hard currency. In fact, Cuba trains medical doctors and exports them to various countries around the world where they are paid what amounts to slave's wages and used as propaganda tools of the Castro regime. A good number of these doctors have defected from their assigned tasks in Venezuela and fled to Colombia where they are awaiting refugee status in order to emigrate to the U.S.
Meanwhile in Cuba, the citizens are forced to suffer hospital and medical conditions that civilized humans would avoid imposing on their pets.
This is typical of the Castro regime which showcases its facilities for foreign tourists and Hollywood useful idiots while forcing Cubans to suffer the indignities of third class citizens in their own country.
Many foreigners (especially Hollywood celebrities) believe that the facilities used by regular Cubans are the same as those that they use and when they return to their countries they help spread Castro's lies and propaganda about the "excellent, free healthcare" that Cubans receive.
While visiting Cuba aboard our sailboat, and ΛΕΟΝΙΔΑΣ being able to understand and speak Spanish, we were able to observe the flagrant disparity in the treatment of Cubans versus visiting foreign tourists and Communist Party aparatchiks.
