Your Daily Flaming Dumbass: Donald Berwick

“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.”
Fairly standard Leftist fare. Ho hum.
What makes it interesting is that those words were uttered (in 2008, not way back in the, like, yunno, ’60s an’ shit) by…
Obama’s nominee appointee for the head of Medicare, one Donald Berwick.
Wait, it gets better:
Sen. Max Baucus, D-Montana, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said Senate confirmation “is an essential process prescribed by the Constitution that serves as a check on executive power and protects Montanans and all Americans by ensuring that crucial questions are asked of the nominee — and answered.”
Barry, when Max “Bacchus” Baucus starts bagging on your demi-fascist posterior for your extra-Constitutional diddling and shell games, you may want to put it back in your pants, just a teensy bit.
