And if you try to deal with these systems on a regular basis you quickly find that they are anything in the world but efficient.

Set all of that aside for a second. The fact is that culturally people here do not trust the government at all. The last thing they want is government in charge of their healthcare. As I mentioned earlier, the government runs the VA healthcare system from the top to the bottom. They have full control over everything. Your dog gets better care. Just saying.
Running a loss mean not enough taxation. Not relevant to the efficiency of the service!
