It only took me a minute to come to the same conclusion

I mean really...what government run bureaucracy is more efficient than the private sector?

If a private sector organization fails or does really stupid things, it should go out of business (cough, cough Bear Sterns). That makes room for people with a better plan or product to get the job done. The private sector has an incentive to do things better and with a smiling face. If they don't, customers find someone else.

If a private sector company gets a bad reputation, then people stop going there and they go out of business. This is a good thing.

Government bureaucracies are not allowed to fail. If they are in crisis, more money and/or people are handed over to the people that caused the failure. If a government bureaucracy has poor service or even kills people, it's takes extra-ordinary public outcry to make even cosmetic changes. Poor managers are rarely let go, except as political scapegoats.

Private sector hospitals and clinics compete for skilled staff. That means that health worker wages are guaranteed to be higher than if the government has the monopoly. If wages go down, people will stop doing the work or less qualified people will do the work. There are plenty of doctors from India, Canada and the UK practicing in the US for that very reason...they are allowed to succeed.

I mean really, it took this guy 40 years to come to this conclusion?
