Dims Abandoning Berwick Nomination

Quoting Avik Roy
at National Review Online:
“Last year, in a highly irregular maneuver, President Obama took advantage of a brief Senate recess to appoint Donald Berwick as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a.k.a. CMS, which controls a budget larger than that of the Defense Department. This avoided a public Senate hearing, where Berwick’s controversial views would have been further explored. (I never tire of quoting Berwick’s eloquent opposition to the ‘darkness of private enterprise.’)

A few weeks back, I discussed the re-nomination of Berwick to the post. Now comes word, via Brett Coughlin of Politico, that Senate Democrats ‘have given up on confirming Don Berwick as CMS administrator’…

President Obama’s appointment of Don Berwick served a useful purpose: It highlighted both Obama’s true views about health policy, and the broader goals that underlie Obamacare. I doubt Berwick’s departure will have much effect on what Obama’s CMS actually strives to achieve.”
