Outrageous Berwick Wants to Replace Docs with Government Systems: GOP Clueless

On Wednesday GOP senators on the Senate Finance Committee  had the privilege of seeing a self-avowed extremist  practice two of the main principles mentioned in David Horowitz’s The Art of Political War for Tea Parties.

The benign-looking Dr. Donald Berwick, the Obama-appointed chief of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), second only to Kathleen Sebelius in the march toward government -controlled medicine, took  30 seconds to demonstrate his soundbite skill when he stated:

My principle is that patients should get all of the care they want and need, when and how they want and need it.

In one swift move the Harvard pediatrician sided with the everyday folks and wasted no time in front of the cameras.

From Horowitz:

Leftists have a party line. When they are fighting they focus their agenda. During legislative battles, every time a Democrat steps in front of the cameras there is at least one line in his speech that is shared with his colleagues.

While Democrats are morally bankrupt…they still win elections because they understand a simple fact. Politics in  America is driven by the romance of the underdog, the story of the little guy who goes up against the system and triumphs in the end.

Besides reading Horowitz, the Republican Senators should have perused a 2008 paper by Dr. Berwick entitled “What Patient-Centered’ Should Mean: Confessions of an Extremist.”

If even one conservative Senator had been armed with the doctor’s outline of “a radical transfer of power and a bolder meaning of ‘patient-centered care” they would have won the 90-minute battle.

Instead they whined and threatened that next time the House “won’t go so easy on him.” Their strategy akin to telling a child ‘wait till your father gets home.’

The ‘confession’ contains a wealth of insight into Berwick’s own revolutionary ambitions regarding the transformation of the healthcare system in the United States. He cites the Institute of Medicine(IOM) ,a far left health division of the National Academy of Sciences funded by the likes of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and their 1998 overview on “The State of Health Care in America.”

Dr. Berwick states that he served on that committee, specifically the “chassis subcommittee,” which is named after the former Kaiser Permanente president David Lawrence, who proclaimed  that “the problem” with the U.S. healthcare system is that “the chassis is broken.”
