GOP weekly address: Obama’s recess appointment is hypocritical

Republicans are accusing President Barack Obama of hypocrisy after the recess appointment of Donald Berwick to be the administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

(AP) - Republicans are accusing President Barack Obama of hypocrisy after the recess appointment of Donald Berwick to be the administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

     

By appointing Berwick while the Senate was in recess, Obama was able to avoid a public hearing and Senate vote for his nominee.

     

In the weekly GOP radio and Internet address, Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts says that's hypocritical amid Obama's promises of transparency.

     

Roberts says Berwick's recess appointment is particularly troubling given the large role he'll play in implementing the massive health care overhaul Obama signed into law earlier this year.

     

Berwick says "the most sweeping overhaul of health care in our lifetime - cannot be implemented behind closed doors."

     

Roberts says he fears health care will be rationed under Berwick.

Republicans say they want to hear your fresh ideas on how to make things better.
