Though I agree with his premise that the government parties use issues such as abortion/gay rights to get the votes they're aiming for, and perhaps we should take a really close look at the other issues that aren't getting talked about and likely affect citizens more...

Is this what we want? Do we want a government mandated healthcare system whereby the people have no choice as in Canada, where private healthcare is illegal? The mere thought sends chills up and down my spine.
Anyone who says things like this is an idiot. It means that they listen to the propaganda they're being fed by the insurance companies in America that falsely construct our health care system in such a way that makes theirs look good (somehow?). Our health care system is not perfect, but it's infinitely better than the American system. And btw, nothing is stopping the rich Canadians from flying south to get an MRI done the next day if they feel they need it immediately. Which they never do need done in a rush, because if they did, it would be done ASAP here, because that's how our system works. If you need it, you get it. If you can wait, you'll wait a little bit. It's that simple.
