I think the real motive, the end aim of government control of health care is not to get out form under the burdens of profitablity. It is a high hope that taking the profit form health care and turning health care into a state apparatus is going to lend to real efficiency.
I think you are specifically referring to the US system. In the US it is not really a nationalization (taking from the private sector to put them under state control) it is simply restructuring of how private organizations manage the heath market-space. The issue only makes sense when you look on the profit versus the quality of service in the US in terms of the general population, it is abysmal and becoming unsupportable in the areas that the private sector drains profits directly from the state......
Reminds me of the Who song...."those that spured us on now sit in judgment of all wrong".
The government gets the health care system so flush with money over the years, diving up costs, making it very profitable and now wants talk like this.
