The panacea of socialized medicine

Despite long waiting lists, staff shortages, and quality of care problems, most Canadians have continued to support the system because they believe access to care should be fair and equitable.
From an article in The Lancet, believe it or not. Apparently fair and equitable is more not as sc important as timely and high-quality.

UPDATE I screwed up my sarcastic final line an wrote "not as" when I meant "more." Thanks for commentors for pointing it out.

Did you mean to say it the other way around?

Freudian slip? going "blue" on us, Dr. Andy? :)

Besides, what is really better: "timely and high quality" for the few that can afford it?
