A Senator Tried To Outsmart A Highly Respected Doctor. It Didn’t Work Out Too Well For Him.

I know this will not come as a shock to you, but sometimes senators care less about facts than their own opinion. Such was the case with Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) at a hearing where experts from Taiwan, Canada, Denmark, and France came to testify about universal health care in their own countries. After Sen. Burr tried to stump Dr. Danielle Martin for the third time, she finally gave him back a little guff, with a big old dose of facts.

At 3:56, Dr. Martin says it better than anyone could.
