Obama's Medicare Czar can't take the heat

Human Events editor Jason Mattera attempts to question Dr. Donald Berwick in the clip below.

Why would Mattera care about Berwick? Because President Barack Obama recently appointed him to an incredibly powerful position as administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services - ground zero for ObamaCare. Congress had no opportunity to question Berwick's appointment; Obama simply appointed him to a new post as Medicare/Medicaid Czar, with a budget bigger than the Pentagon.

According to a Washington Examiner report, Berwick is a key figure in Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), an international organization that in recent years has been an aggressive and dishonest critic of Israel. The PHR web site offers a press release referring to Berwick as "a board member."

With transparency like this, no wonder Democrats are about to lose both houses of Congress. It will be interesting to see what evidence of further corruption the Obama impeachment hearings produce.
