Obama's Medicare Czar Can't Take the Heat

Jason Mattera of Human Events confronted Obama's controversial recess appointee Donald Berwick posing questions that he'd rather not have to answer. Berwick was chosen to head Medicare without questioning while Congress was out of session. As for a little background into Obama's Medicare Czar, in 2008 while speaking to an audience in the UK on the topic of health care, he said “Any health care funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized and humane must redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is by definition redistributional." He also has said that he opposes free markets in health care. (To see videos of both, click here and here.) Of course, Berwick didn't say a word to Mattera.
