The State of our Union is either in "Disrepair" or "Confusion" or "Panic", but the Obama Administration wants you to think that everything is just peachy keen. Relax, the economy is going great; our debt is only an indicator of our wealth [per Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) the poster politician for term limits];
we have a wonderful Health Care System...just like the NHS (National Health Service of Great Britain) and our President just bypassed the Senates' mandate of Advice and Consent by appointing Dr. Donald Berwick as the head of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) over the holiday weekend.
Why? Well he was looking at a very hard confirmation fight with Congress over this choice. Fact is that Dr. Berwick in on record as saying, “I am romantic about the National Health Service. I love it". The department of the NHCS he seems to admire the most is the National Institute for Clinical Effectiveness (NICE), it's rationing arm. Citing Dr. Berwick this institution is a “global treasure.”
This is also akin to a "Death Panel" because if your life-prolonging costs are above a certain limit, chances are the procedure will be denied. Wow...this guy loves Rationing and "Death Panels' which critics of Obamacare said would happen while proponents, including Obama himself, laughingly asserted would never happen and were only lies and scare tactics. He and his (I won't even refer to them as his administration anymore; I'll call it like I see it) Henchmen are the ones spreading lies and in his arrogance just does whatever he pleases because in his mind we are just too stupid to know what is good for us. This post had been vacant since 2006; why the rush to appoint someone over a holiday weekend? Is it just a coincidence that this former Harvard acquaintance is also a proponent of Redistributive Wealth?
For all you "Lame Stream Media" as Bernie Goldberg has dubbed you, what did you call Glenn Beck when he told you that Obamacare was not about health care but was about Redistributive Wealth? If any other President had attempted this kind of Unconstitutional posturing and "Revolutionary" antics, well Congress would have had him impeached months ago. All Clinton did was lie about cheating on his wife; this man has cheated on the entire American public. Impeach Barack Hussein Obama before it is too late.
