{{But if it's a public health system, at least that information about rationing will be publicly available. I'd much rather have a bunch of bureaucrats making decisions that are public knowledge because the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one than some group of executives deciding behind closed doors to deny coverage so they can get larger bonuses. }}

1. Having been a government bureaucrat, I do not recommend increasing the power of people like me and people I knew in government. Even in the Obama administration, political appointees and higher ups strongly encouraged phone calls so that no records were generated.
