As in every socialist state everyone will get a little bit. Everyone except the elites, they will have the best. It will be "fair" of course. This isn't about being the best health care system in the world. It isn't even about being an adequate health care system. It is about the progressives idea of fairness; great care for the ruling class and the bare minimum, carefully rationed based on the value of the life of the patient. If you want to see what we will have in 10 or so years look to England. It is grim.
