It could be efficient for govt to operate public clinics and hospitals for the poor, but the odds of getting approved are not good.

It lets employers everywhere drop coverage and send employees to the public clinics. It puts private practice doctors and hospitals in competition with government. That will probably limit their income, and they will strongly oppose anything like that.

A govt health insurance program required for everyone is a far more attractive choice from a politics point of view.
