Get ready for rationing. Donald Berwick was the recipient of a recess appointment from Obama to serve as the Director of the Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Berwick, as we have mentioned in this spot time and again, is a supporter of Health Care rationing. As he said, “the decision is not whether or not we will ration care, the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.”
And Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell adds at The Hill:
“As if shoving a trillion-dollar government takeover of healthcare down the throat of a disapproving American public wasn’t enough, apparently the Obama administration intends to arrogantly circumvent the American people yet again by recess-appointing one of the most prominent advocates of rationed healthcare to implement their national plan,” McConnell said in a statement.
McConnell criticized Democrats for not holding a confirmation hearing for Berwick, and suggested the party was trying to avoid tough questions about the healthcare reform law.
“Democrats haven’t scheduled so much as a committee hearing for Donald Berwick, but the mere possibility of allowing the American people the opportunity to hear what he intends to do with their healthcare is evidently reason enough for this administration to sneak him through without public scrutiny.”
If you didn’t believe that ObamaCare would ration care, what further evidence do you need?
