Posted on 07/06/2010 7:20:17 PM PDT by CaroleL
The White House announced late Tuesday that President Barack Obama will bypass the Senate and appoint Dr. Donald Berwick to oversee Medicare and Medicaid. This type of recess appointment is nothing new; presidents from both parties have frequently made them. But this particular behind the scenes, out of the spotlight appointment not only gives Dr. Berwick the job, it saves the administration from public hearings that would have renewed the debate on Obamacare.

I’d love someone to show the last time a President with 59 senators in his own party had to do recess appointments because the majority leader wouldn’t even give his candidates a hearing.
He has freaking 59 senators! For crying out loud! How much a dictatorship does this guy need?
You’d think that by this time congress would be in full revolt. I’m talking BOTH parties. This asshat is bypassing and minimalizing them on EVERY major piece of legislation. The whole way 0bama care was shoe-horned through congress was an absolute disgrace! This is the reason he’s allowed to act like a third world dictator because we have a congress that’s pretty much sat down and let this pres__ent ride roughshod over them. EVERY ONE OF THE CLOWNS IN CONGRESS NEED TO BE TURNED OUT IN NOVEMBER!!!
This guy is the architect of the “Death Panel”.
This recess appointment is an insult to the American people, Senator John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican, said. Dr. Berwick is a self-professed supporter of rationing health care, and he wont even have to explain his views to the American people in a hearing. Once again, President Obama has made a mockery of his pledge to be accountable and transparent.
And Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas, added: Once again, the Obama administration is going behind closed doors out of fear the American people will learn that Dr. Berwick plans to use rationing as a cost-cutting tool to achieve the billions of dollars in cuts to Medicare called for in the health care reform bill.
The bastard we have for a president is bypassing the democratic process, many have died for, completely, despite his overwhelming majorities in Congress. We have totally lost our country.
After Dems repeatedly stalled the nomination. Bush wasn't hiding anything.
What a worthless marxist muslim arrogant pussy we have as President.
Why Donald Berwick? Did Jack Kervorkian turn down the job?
