The "state" cure would be a disaster all round - it would cost the tax payer billions and billions a year in drug discovery and failed clinical trials.
Also, the government wouldn't pay the money for the top scientists, data managers, regulatory staff, clinicians, doctors, research scientists etc etc etc.
It would be a complete disaster.
Is that not happening even as we speak?
