Speaking at town hall meeting today in Oklahoma City, U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, offered his thoughts on President Obama’s appointment of Donald Berwick as the head of Medicare and Medicaid programs.
The appointment was made while Senators were on a July 4 break. Normally the appointment would have to be approved the Senate.
“He (President Obama) will never get it through,” said Coburn, who often reminds town hall audiences that he and the President are personal friends. “He won’t make it because he believes in a socialist health care system…We’re not going to put somebody in charge of Medicare that’s for rationing the care of seniors in this country.”
