Barrasso Statement on Recess Appointment of CMS Director

July 6, 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) made the following statement regarding President Obama's decision to recess appoint Dr. Donald Berwick to be Director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS):

"This recess appointment is an insult to the American people. Dr. Berwick is a self professed supporter of rationing health care and he won't even have to explain his views to the American people in a Congressional hearing.  Once again, President Obama has made a mockery of his pledge to be accountable and transparent."
