Another Totalitarian Joins Obama Gang

More evidence that Obama feels comfortable appointing totalitarians to important posts. As David Harsanyi reports,
Donald Berwick, a professor at both the Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health and Obama's pick to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Berwick will be charged with managing government health care programs.
Forget for a moment that there should be no government health care programs for anyone to manage. For now, ask what does Mr. Berwick believe that merits him that horrific charge? This horrific statement:
Berwick's most revealing assertion was that he did not "believe that the individual health care consumer can enforce through choice the proper configurations of a system as massive and complex as health care. That is for leaders to do."
If there's anyone left in the United States who's actually paying attention and doesn't believe that Progressivism and its adherents are a grave danger, he or she is simply unpersuadable by evidence.
