Danielle Martin, MD, MPP , Vice-President Medical Affairs & Health System Solutions, Women's College Hospital, Toronto, Canada, explains healthcare to not-very-bright US Senator Richard Burr from, shockingly, North Carolina.

BURR: On average, how many Canadian patients on a waiting list die each year? Do you know?

MARTIN: I don't, sir, but I know that there are 45,000 in America who die waiting because they don't have insurance at all.
