There are very few things that are better done by a large central bureaucracy, that is why folks on the right speak about “draining the swamp.” Bureaucrats don’t like to give up power, and, convinced of their own wisdom, usually fight any effort for reform. In particular, the federal bureaucracy cannot do health care, The case of the Veterans Administration is only the most visible failure.The Indian Health Service is reportedly a disaster. Medicaid promises much but few physicians are willing to see Medicaid patients. Medicare has always been a Ponzi scheme, and as the Baby Boomers are rapidly reaching retirement age, there are not enough members of the Baby Bust to support them. Medicare is due to go broke in short order.
