A Marxist inspired, top down, government run health care system here in the U.S. will suffer the same fate as toilet paper and tooth paste factories in the old Soviet Union.  The bureaucrats, i.e., the planners, cannot know everything that takes place in the typical medical market place.  Therefore there will be surpluses of few things and horrible shortages in a host of others.
