    President Obama to Make Recess Appointment of CMS Administrator Rationing Expert

    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.

    In an interview last year with Biotechnology Healthcare, Berwick said society makes decisions about rationing all the time, and that the "decision is not whether or not we will ration care -- the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open. And right now, we are doing it blindly."

    So the UHC drive marches on with a Rationing Expert at the helm who COULDN'T GET SEATED BY A DEM RUN HOUSE AND SENATE.

    I heard about this goofball on Rush Limbaugh today. He's a communist clown that wants to do nothing but take everyone's money and give it to the welfare class.

    Did this have anything to do with the GOP blocking every single appointment?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Dems own the House and Senate, the GOP, well they can NOW in the Senate at least threaten to filibuster. But that's about it.

    You see, that's the problem..... Barry didn't try to get him through the nomination process, that would have opened the horrible sound bites from this guy up to public exposure, can't have that!

    They never did it as systematically as the GOP is. Furthermore you don't know what I thought back them, so stop pretending you do

    The GOP has been blocking almost every single appointment, why would this one be any different?
