“Once upon a time, socialized medicine worked VERY well in this country, so it is not possible to legitimately broadly castigate “government medicine” as the source of the problem.”
Fundamentally our government owned and run schools are a single-payer, compulsory funded, compulsory use, socialist-entitlement! If they **seemed** to function somewhat well in the past it was due to the values of the teachers and principals in the system. For example, my father was born in 1913. He grew up with his parents in his grandparents home. His grandfather served in the Civil War. Up until the 1960 and early 70s when this generation of teachers still had close contact with the values of those Americans who literally built the American Industrial Revolution and broke the sod of this land.
Just as government owned and run socialist-entitlement K-12 schooling is a mess due to its foundation of socialism, so we will eventually see the same in socialized medicine.
I will address “local (socialist) control” in another post.

Horse manure/strawman argument. But typical of the "no-government-at-all" school of libertariainism.
