• Former Obama Official Admits Single Payer ‘Next Step’

    Here it comes

    Donald Berwick, the former head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, told supporters on Friday that, while the “Affordable Care Act” has “made historic progress,” the “next step” would be to socialize his state’s entire healthcare industry.

    Berwick’s running for governor in Massachusetts as a Democrat and, as Politico notes, offered his campaign supporters a chance to sign a petition on his website backing “single payer.”

    In fact, he’s made socialized medicine a key focus of his campaign.

    Recently he wrote that “Massachusetts was the first state to make health care a human right. Now it’s time to lead again – toward single payer health care – ‘Medicare-for-all.’”

    Prior to his gubernatorial bid, Berwick ran the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services after a controversial “recess” appointment. CMS was charged with implementing Obamacare, as Berwick’s own bio boasts: “At one of the most critical times in our nation’s history, Don implemented many of the most important provisions of the Affordable Care Act.”

    In the past, Berwick’s been a vocal supporter of Britain’s National Health Service and in 2009 openly endorsed rationing in an interview, stating “the decision is not whether or not we will ration care — the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.”

    He joins the list of other prominent Democrats, including Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, who’ve admitted that Obamacare is actually a transitional step toward the total government takeover of the healthcare market.
