It is now an appointment – no longer a nomination. President Obama has used his authority to put yet another piece of his transformation of America in place. Obama has bypassed the Senate and recess appointed Donald Berwick, another Marxist, the head of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Michelle Malkin has a full post on the issue.
President Obama’s decision to put a leading advocate of rationed health care in charge of Medicare without even a public hearing is a slap in the face of the American people who have every right to know how Donald Berwick intends to implement President Obama’s new trillion dollar health care plan. Sneaking Dr. Berwick into power without giving the public any opportunity to hear his controversial views on rationing only raises more red flags about the unpopular health care law that was jammed through Congress over the objection of the American people. This is another backroom deal that favors special interests over the American people.
