Obama is a thug who is destorying America any way he can including making appoinments without congressional hearings



(Obama will do anything to spread the wealth around. In Nov 2010 he knows things will change. Obama's time is short. He must put his crazed agenda forward. Hopefully the new congress will void what he has done or will do.) Story Reports

Donald Berwick Obamas new head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services speaks on Redistributing Wealth or how obama is going to require Americans to pay reparations to blacks via obamacare. Here he is! Meet the new health-care rationing czar. He is the DEATH PANEL CZAR!

Obama is a thug who is destorying America any way he can

The White House’s announcement today that they will bypass the nomination process of the United States Senate to recess appoint Donald Berwick as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is an act of unconscionable hubris.

The White House claims this act is in response to “Washington game-playing”, accusing Republicans of planning to “stall the nomination” as long as possible. This is nothing more than a baldfaced lie. Republicans cannot stall this nomination — it is impossible for them to do so under Senate rules — as not one hearing has been called or scheduled. Even the New York Times doesn’t buy the White House’s explanation, reporting: “The recess appointment was somewhat unusual because the Senate is in recess for less than two weeks and senators were still waiting for Dr. Berwick to submit responses to some of their requests for information.”

In truth, it is the White House that is playing games with the health policy of the nation and the welfare of the American people. In bypassing the traditional process through which the Senate advises and consents to nominees, President Obama is preventing Senators and the people they represent from obtaining any answers from Mr. Berwick, who has repeatedly made claims and statements that raise numerous questions about his suitability for this critical position.

Such questions would have concerned his remarks attacking private-sector solutions to health care problems, in support of “rationing with our eyes open,” and speaking of his affection for the United Kingdom’s National Health Service as “romantic.” In footage discovered and highlighted by the Heartland Institute in May, Mr. Berwick made this audacious statement: “Any health care funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized, and humane must, must redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is by definition redistributional.”

Senators have expressed concerns about statements like these, as well as Mr. Berwick’s background. He is a nominee with little management experience poised to head the second largest insurer on the planet, an agency with more funding to disperse than all but the top 15 economies in the world. In fact, the White House’s decision to make this recess appointment is as much a demonstration of their unwillingness to have any debate about Mr. Berwick’s views occur in the public eye as it is of their concern that some in their own party have privately questioned whether he is outside the mainstream.

Such questions are of course appropriate. Thanks to the White House’s decision, they will not be answered. Understand: Mr. Berwick’s position as head of CMS will give him unprecedented power to apply his views on health care policy under President Obama’s new health care regime. Yet thanks to the White House’s game playing, he will not answer one question, not one, before he is ensconced in a position where his radical policy views will ultimately effect the lives and health care of every American.

As we saw in the process of Obamacare’s passage, there is nothing – not precedent, not tradition, not even the most basic expectations of fairness or responsible governance – that will stop President Obama and his allies in their quest to remake American social policy in their image.

Recess appointments are specifically allowed in the Constitution.

"The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session."

Its also mandated by the Constitution to hold congressional elections every 2 years. Americans shall have power to fill up all the vacancies that will occur because of Liberal tendencies to ignore the US voters. Republicans will take back the majority in the house. The senate will be filled with several more republicans. Congresional hearings will be held to expose the fraud obama. Obama will be impeached and leave office in disgrace.

The new president which will be the republican speaker of the house, shall also have the power to fill vacancies.

This is a real revolution. The enemy have been identified. The enemy is anyone who supports obama and liberal democrates.

Sure, the Democrats will lose seats BIG time in the next election. But it is because Obama's policies have not worked (so far at any rate), not because people believe that Obama was not born in Hawaii or is not a Natural Born Citizen for any other reason.

And, since it is constitutional, Obama's recess appointment will not add to the number of votes that will switch to Republican from Democrat.

Have you noticed that no Republican who is expected to run in November has said that Obama was not born in Hawaii, lost his citizenship in Indonesia, or is not qualified to be president because of the citizenship of his father?
