Boom! What happens when a Republican Senator challenges a Canadian Doctor on the merits of a single-payer healthcare system? Hint: It doesn’t end well for the naive Senator!
Senator Burr: “On average, how many Canadian patients die on a waiting list each year? Do you know?”
Dr. Danielle Martin: “I don’t Sir, but I know that there are 45,000 in America who die because they don’t have insurance at all.”
Bernie Sanders posted the video to his official Facebook page, along with the following comment:
“I brought Dr. Danielle Martin in 3 years ago when I asked a panel of experts to contrast the United States health care system with single-payer models throughout the world. The United States is the only major country on earth that does not guarantee health care as a right. We must join the industrialized world and go forward with a Medicare for all, single-payer program.”
