Let's assume you're right and it's wildly inefficient.

three questions come to mind.

1 - Why do you think the Federal Government's plan would be more efficient? The Federal Government isn't exactly the model of efficiency.

2 - What if a State has a "better" plan? Should they be allowed to get a waiver? Why is the Federal Government holding back the States?

3 - Why do you think one size fits all is a good thing? The best plan for a State like Delaware might not work in Idaho.

Just because 50 plans would be inefficent, doesn't mean one Federal one wouldn't be a disaster either.
