The official who will preside over this fiscal trainwreck is Donald Berwick, the Harvard professor and chief of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement who the White House has nominated to run Medicare. Dr. Berwick explained in an interview last year that the British National Health Service has "developed very good and very disciplined, scientifically grounded, policy-connected models for the evaluation of medical treatments from which we ought to learn." He added 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."
Wait, I thought the notion of health care rationing was just a scare tactic devised by talk radio to undermine the first Black president? But, there you have it. Dr. Berwick admits that the forty years during which Americans were promised old age medical security by their good and benevolent government were a lie. To make the Progressive-Socialist-Fascist omelet, you gotta break a few old people.
Get ready, folks. This won't be the last broken promise from Barry Vladimir Hussein Soetoro Obama and the Marxist Democrats. They are just getting warmed up.
