Dr. Brian Day, the former President of the Canadian Medical Association, appeared on the O'Reilly Factor on Thursday to give Americans a better understanding of Canada's free health system that includes rationed medical care.
Dr. Day explained why there aren't enough doctors for Canadian citizens:
We rank 26 out of 28 in the developed countries as far as doctors to population. It's part of the mechanism of rationing that has to happen when you promise to deliver everything and don't have enough resources.
And here's what he said about those long lines of patients waiting for medical care in Canada, which explains why so many well-to-do Canadians come to the U.S. to seek treatment.:
We have over a million people waiting for surgery and probably another million waiting to see their specialist before they get to wait for the surgery.
