Is Socialized Medicine More Efficient?

Or does any bureaucracy get bigger over time? Spending on NHS bureaucracy up 50 per cent - Telegraph
The increases include a 43 per cent rise in the costs of managers, while spending on clerical staff rose by 78 per cent at Primary Care Trusts (PCTs), which decide how NHS funds should be used. Meanwhile, their expenditure on management consultants and temporary staff more than doubled.
The number of doctors hasn't gone up by 43 percent.

Typical political posturing on both sides.
