Free Donald Berwick!

Come on, Democrats. What are you so afraid of? Earlier this month, President Obama circumvented the Senate and recess-appointed health care rationing champion Don Berwick to head the Medicaid and Medicare programs. Democrats on Capitol Hill refuse to bring Berwick out for public hearings. Which closet at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue have they locked Berwick in?

It’s time to start a campaign: FREE DONALD BERWICK!

More hide-and-seek games from the most transparent Democrat reign ever. Steven Ertelt at Life News and Connie Hair at Human Events:

Like their counterparts in the Senate, House Democrats are refusing to hold a hearing on the recess appointment of rationing advocate Donald Berwick, whom President Barack Obama named to become the director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Obama appointed Berwick without a hearing or vote in the Senate and, even though he complained about that, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus will not put together a hearing.

Now, Connie Hair of the conservative newspaper Human Events reports House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Sander Levin won’t hold one either.

Both top Democrats are denying public hearings on Berwick even though he will be charged with helping lead the implementation of the new national health care plan Obama signed into law that concerns pro-life groups on abortion and rationing issues.

Rep. Dave Camp, a pro-life Michigan lawmaker who is the leading Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, responded to Levin’s refusal to hold a hearing.

“Apparently, House Democrats are really taking Speaker Pelosi’s ‘we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it’ style of governing to heart. Now, we have to hand the reins at CMS over to Dr. Berwick first so we can later find out what direction he will take Medicare and Medicaid,” he said, according to HE.

“At a time when Democrats have implemented the most radical changes ever to the nation’s health care system, they are refusing to conduct the proper and necessary oversight required by the Committee,” Camp said.

Commenter Rogue Cheddar: “They’re just rationing his public appear[a]nces, you know, to make the heart grow fonder.”
