"Do you want some bureaucrat deciding what medical measures you will receive?"
Having been a member of MANY different private insurer HMO's since I started my career. I find the question a tad disingenuous in that my health-care has been and always will be managed by bureaucrats!
Generally we don't call them bureaucrats when they are employed by for-profit insurers but bureaucrats they are in all but name.
Do I want to trust my health-care to the 'big greedy' corporations or do I want to trust it to the 'big scary' governments?
Can I have a third option please?
