As we continue to be accosted by voices pro and con on the subject of health-care reform. I have noticed that one of the statements I hear most often goes something akin to this:

"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?
