Soviet-Style socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, who came in second place behind Hillary Clinton in the Democrat presidential primary last year, had a Canadian doctor on as a guest during his video podcast, The Bernie Sanders Show on Wednesday, and it turned out to be one big, embarrassment for the leftist that wants to inflict socialized medicine or the better-sounding “single payer” upon America.
Dr. Danielle Martin told [score]Bernie Sanders [/score]that while Canadians needing life-threatening emergency care don’t experience wait times, those who need to see a neurologist for migraine headaches or someone who needs a hip replacement may have waiting times of several months to a year — or more.
“We do have a problem with wait times for what we call elective or non-urgent procedures,” Dr. Martin told Bernie Sanders. “So people who are waiting to see a specialist for a non-urgent issue..”
“Give us some examples,” Bernie interrupted.
“If I have a patient who’s got migraines and I need advice about how to manage it, they might wait several months to see a neurologist for a non-urgent problem like that,” Dr. Martin confessed. “Or non-urgent surgeries, the classic example being a hip or a knee replacement,” she confessed.
“So how long will it take me in the average?” Sanders asked.
“It depends on where you are in the country. Sometimes it’s a few months, sometimes it’s a year,” the doctor told the socialist Senator from Vermont. “In some places, it’s sometimes it’s been even longer than that, that people wait for a hip or a knee replacement,” she admitted.
“And I think that’s totally unacceptable,” she said.
Bernie Sanders is trying to push his “Medicare for All” single payer scheme through that would create a socialized system mirroring the Canadian health care debacle.
Wait a minute, why do we need CommieCare if Obamacare is so great? We have been told that Obamacare is wonderful by Democrats for several years now. Sadly, government ruined health care in America and leftists like Bernie Sanders think the cure is even more government control.
Bolshevik Bernie is probably very sorry he invited this guest on his show.
