    Donald Berwick, an advocate of health care rationing and redistributing wealth through the health-care system, who President Barack Obama appointed administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) without a Senate confirmation hearing or vote, will not answer questions from the U.S. Senate, according to members of the committee that has overisght over his nomination.

    Weve been trying to get him to answer questions in writing. He wont do that, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a member of the Senate Finance Commmittee, told Thursday. Weve been trying to get him up for a hearing. He wont do that. He has indicated he might come to a hearing. So far, its been unsuccessful, no matter how important these matters are.

    Bypassing the Senate to appoint Berwick during the July 4 congressional recess, Obama later re-nominated the outspoken physician to the position fifteen days later. That means the Finance Committee could hold a confirmation hearing on Berwick now and send his nomination to the full Senate for a confirmation vote. But Hatch said the Senate Democratic majority has done nothing to advance the nomination, and Berwick has not been forthcoming with answers. Hatch predicted there will not be a confirmation hearing for Berwick before the election.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
