Filmmaker Michael Moore will testify at noon next Tuesday, June 12, at a Sacramento legislative briefing on his new documentary “SiCKO,” an indictment of the U.S. healthcare system.
The briefing will be sponsored by state Senate Health Committee Chairwoman Sheila Kuehl, D-Santa Monica, the author of SB 840, the single-payer California Universal Healthcare Act. After Moore briefs the bill’s several dozen co-authors — including much of the Bay Area’s Legislative delegation — he’ll take the stage at a 2 p.m. rally with the California Nurses Association and Physicians for a National Health Program on the State Capitol’s West Steps, and then host a special premiere screening of “SiCKO” for RNs, doctors, healthcare activists, and invited guests at 3:30 p.m. in Sacramento’s Crest Theater. “SiCKO” hits U.S. theaters June 29.
