President Barack Obama's recess appointment of Donald Berwick to lead Medicare was intended to avoid another high-profile congressional fight over healthcare reform. Instead, its renewed at least temporarily the well-worn partisan debate over the government's role in medicine.

Another day, another outrage.
Another day, another outrage.

Oh... I wouldn't bet yer sweet little bippy on THAT! Not with this crowd that feels justified in this only because they've pushed so hard for it in the past 80+ years!! Which is exactly why it should never be adopted because the people of America STILL DON'T WANT IT!!!
He believes in rationing and cutting off care to those too old and ill. (death panels)
Shall we await all the apologies to Sarah Palin?
ObamaCare=rationing. It is the only way socialized medicine can work at all.
This Obama appointee's "speciality" is rationing. Every word Obama and his minions have issued denying rationing since Obamacare was a seed of an idea is now officially a bold faced lie.

Some days—we are treated to plural events !!!!!
And, because she used the term death panels, Polifact gave Sarah Palin its Lie of the Year Award.”
Geeee- Maybe Sarah can give it back to them in the near future!!
Sorta like the Winston Churchill bust NObama gave back to Britain.
It's almost hard to believe that they got this one right!
(I'm very glad they did)
Death panels are back...they never left!
Yeah but... They’re still gonna be stuck with it unless they get the next two big elections right as well, don’tcha think???
I honestly can’t predict. I keep waiting for America to wake up.
Perhaps we need to start throwing more than tea in the harbor?
Governor Bobby Jindal knows about this from recent experience!!!
