Obama gives recess appointment to another radical dirtbag, Donald Berwick. Video: Berwick on Redistributing Wealth. Expert on Rationing

'It's why we call them IDIOTS!'

Via HotAir- Just how controversial was Barack Obama’s appointment of Donald Berwick to head the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)? Even with an 18-seat majority in the Senate, Obama shrank from having Berwick even show up at a hearing. Instead, Obama will use a recess appointment to get Berwick a pass from Congressional oversight:

With Congress officially on recess, President Obama will on Wednesday use his ability to make recess appointments to name one of his more controversial nominees: Donald Berwick, nominee to be Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The April nomination of Berwick — president and chief executive officer of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement — was in trouble and might not have been able to meet Senate confirmation due to comments Berwick made in the past about rationing health care. Even if Berwick could have been confirmed by the Senate, Democrats have little appetite for another round of fighting about changes to the health care system, Democrats said. READ MORE...

NOTE- Every liberal who attacked the following, should get down on their knees, depending ON which one they're in front of, kiss something and apologize.

Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Andrew Wilkow, Mike Church, Bill Cunningham, Laura Ingram and others, who WARNED anyone who would listen that Obama was a far left, radical con artist and Marxist.

'Spreading the wealth is good for everyone' Obama said, and the 'idiots' didn't pay attention. Marxism, socialism, 'spreading the wealth' has failed miserably everywhere it has been tried. NOT capitalism! Go look up 'INCENTIVE' in the dictionary if you're confused at this point.

Instead they attacked and ridiculed talk radio conservatives throwing every name in the book at them. Well how dumb do these liberals feel now? It turns out that they were right, which is why they actually have a large audience!


Wow! What an asshole. Please arrange a charity boxing match with this clown!

Will Olbermann apologize to Sarah Palin? She was right....a government rationing board made up of Ivy League elitist morons who are deciding on who receives health care is pretty much a death panel. It's the perfect description actually..

If Olbermann actually did some accurate research, which he never does, he would have already known about rationing health care when Obama tried to appoint tax cheat Tom Daschle as health secretary. Even in Daschle's book 'Critical' he encourages rationing health care. It's called a death panel because senior citizens are often turned down for certain treatment because the cost isn't worth keeping an elderly person alive for 'a few more years.' That is, your mother or grandmother, not theirs.

Remember, these scumbag politicians are exempt from the government run healthcare.

Like Andrew Wilkow says, "socialism is for the people, not the socialists."

Top 10 Things Obama Doesn't Want You to Know About Donald Berwick

1. Donald Berwick, President Obama's nominee to administer Medicare and Medicare, has stated openly that he favors rationing healthcare 'with our eyes open.' He wants the government to be able to decide how much healthcare you and your family are entitled to.

2. Berwick believes for that healthcare to be effective we must redistribute wealth. 'Any healthcare 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 redistributional,' said Berwick.

3. Berwick is 'in love' with Britain’s National Heath Service. He called the British system -- that many here in the U.S. refer to as 'free for all, but worthless to many' -- a 'seductress' about which he is 'romantic.'

In an op-ed published in the Washington Post in 1992 Berwick stated about Britain: 'At last, a nation where healthcare is a right and carrying a semi-automatic machine gun is a privilege. Berwick also described a 'utopian' future in which the government is in complete control of the healthcare system.

4. Berwick believes that ultrasounds in normal pregnancies and cesarean sections amount to an 'assault' and wants to cut prenatal care programs.

'As many as 80% of hysterectomies are scientifically unnecessary, so are more than a quarter of the drugs used for ear infections, most of the ultrasounds done in normal pregnancies, and half of cesarean sections in the United States. Isn’t this, with all do respect, some form of assault and battery, however unintended,' said Berwick

5. Berwick has repeatedly expressed his support for a single-payer healthcare system. Berwick has stated that if he could 'wave a wand…

6. Berwick will cut the number of cardiac centers, cancer-care centers, neonatal intensive-care units, and high-level trama centers.

7. Berwick doesn’t trust the free market. 'Don't trust market forces,' instructs Berwick. Trust 'leaders with plans.'

'When you rely on incentives, market forces, competition, and upward reporting for excellence you are playing with fire. I believe it is better to rely instead whenever possible on spirit, purpose, learning cooperation and joy in work.'

8. Berwick will cut preventative care in cases such as mammograms and ultrasounds. 'One over demanding service is prevention; annual physicals, screening tests, and other measures that supposedly help catch disease early,' said Berwick in a 1998 Institute for Healthcare Improvement publication.

9. On 'End of Life Care,' Berwick stated in a 1993 speech that “only a minority of patients, families, and clinicians support prolonged use of life-sustaining procedures and dramatic interventions in the terminal states of illness, yet substantial use of these procedures continue.”

10. Berwick, highlights race as a factor in healthcare reform. 'It’s still true that race, minority race, especially being black in our country, is the strongest critique that we have about health,' said Berwick
