pls have a seat and we'll be with you in a year

Michael Ahrens - September 14, 2017

Bernie Sanders has been using this Canadian doctor to help sell his plan for a government takeover of health care, but Dr. Martin just went very off script in discussing the more-than-year-long wait times that exist in Canada…

Watch Here

DR. DANIELLE MARTIN: “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. Or non-urgent surgeries, the classic example being a hip or a knee replacement.”

SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: “So how long will it take me in the average?”

MARTIN: “It depends on where you are in the country. Sometimes it’s a few months, sometimes it’s a year. In some places, it’s sometimes it’s been even longer than that, that people wait for a hip or a knee replacement. And I think that is totally unacceptable. I don’t think that we should stand for it in our system. I think that there’s no reason why people should have to wait.”
