The recess appointment of an unabashed redistributionist
A fervent supporter of socialized health care is chosen to run Medicare and Medicaid

WASHINGTON, DC—Dr. Donald Berwick has been the recipient of a recess appointment by President Obama to be the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In 2008, Mr. Berwick spoke in London; here are a portion of his remarks…..
“Any health care funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized and humane must—must— redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent healthcare is by definition re-distributional.”

Or try this little gem on for size…

"The decision is not whether or not we will ration care. The decision will be whether we ration care with our eyes open."

Karl Rove pointed out on FOX News that Mr. Berwick’s recess appointment did not meet two of the 3 traditional tests of a recess appointment: the nominee is too controversial, the nominee is being held-up by senate member, and or there exists an emergency and the post cannot remain vacant. Dr. Berwick’s appointment is just another in a long line of demonstrative actions that Obama is a committed socialist that is using the power of his office to transform America from a free market representative republic to a European socialized democracy.
