Radio Equalizer flags the epiphany:



ROSIE O'DONNELL (42:46): How can universal health care be so good if you're waiting seven years?

CALLER: It's not considered an emergency surgery--

O'DONNELL: Oh, OK.

CALLER: It's considered elective, so if it was an emergency surgery, it would be a lot quicker. To see any kind of specialist is at least a few months, you're not going to get into see somebody next week.

O'DONNELL: If you called and sort of were persistent in saying to them, 'I really need this'... it doesn't change the [waiting-] list order.

CALLER: ...They're telling me, by the way, it's gonna be another two or three years...
