Here he is! Meet the new health-care rationing czar

Wealth-redistributor Berwick detests U.S. medical system, seeks to blow it up

Don Berwick

WASHINGTON – When Barack Obama bypassed the Senate yesterday and appointed Dr. Donald Berwick as head of the $800 billion Medicare and Medicaid agency, he chose a man who is outspokenly in favor of government health-care rationing, redistribution of wealth and destroying the U.S. system of medical care in favor of a single-payer government-controlled program.

The recess appointment allows Obama to skip what would have been contentious confirmation hearings because of Berwick's controversial, self-described "radical" approach to remaking the U.S. health-care system from the ground up.

Here's the guide to fighting socialism: Joseph Farah's "Taking America Back"

Republicans had raised questions about Berwick, pointing to his past writings and speeches. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., has called him a "known advocate of government rationing of health care."

Berwick is the founder of a Cambridge, Mass., think-tank and will take over as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The position has been unfilled since 2006 when administrator Mark McClellan stepped down.

Study: Obamacare Fails to Pay for High Risk Pools

President Barack Obama's new healthcare law reportedly doesn't allocate nearly enough money to cover the estimated 5.6 million to 7 million Americans with pre-existing medical conditions who will qualify for temporary high-risk insurance pools

An analysis by the Center for Studying Health System Change found that the new law “could leave hundreds of thousands of potential participants with serious medical problems unable to obtain coverage,” and concluded that the $5 billion earmarked for the pools might cover as few as 200,000 people a year.

That’s double the number of people now covered by underfinanced risk pools in 35 states, the New York Times reported.

Scam alert issued on new health care law


Scam artists are taking advantage of the new health insurance law to peddle phony policies.

Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius said Tuesday she is warning state officials about a proliferation of scams involving phony health insurance policies. Federal investigators are also on the lookout.

Some of the hustlers are going door to door claiming there's a limited open-enrollment period to buy health insurance now. But the big expansion of coverage won't come for another four years, and door-to-door salespeople are unlikely to be part of the plan then.

"Unfortunately, scam artists and criminals may be using the passage of these historic reforms as an opportunity to confuse and defraud the public," Sebelius wrote in a letter to state insurance commissioners and attorneys general.

In the letter, released Tuesday, she urged vigorous prosecution of anyone caught selling fraudulent policies.

Health-Care Time Bombs


If the past few days are any indication, activists will find plenty in the health-care bill to keep them motivated for the next eight months.


I recently asked Matt Kibbe, president of FreedomWorks, how grassroots conservative activists will be able to maintain their intensity now that the health-care bill has been signed into law. “It’s going to be just like the stimulus,” he answered. “People are going to start finding out what’s in this bill, and all of its nasty surprises are going to go off like a series of time bombs between now and November.”


Pass it and find out what’s in it — just like Nancy Pelosi said.


That process has already begun. The day after the health-care bill passed, it was reported that the committee staffers who wrote the bill would be exempt from provisions requiring their bosses to obtain insurance through the exchanges the bill sets up. Now another provision is blowing up in the Democrats’ faces: a tax change that exposes companies such as Caterpillar, John Deere, and Verizon to hundreds of millions of dollars in new costs and may lead some of them to drop prescription-drug coverage for retirees.


The provision did not attract much attention during the larger debate over the health-care bill, but now corporate memos are starting to leak in which employees are told to expect changes to their health-care plans as a result of the legislation. The tax change affects a subsidy that was designed to help employers continue offering prescription-drug plans for retirees instead of dumping them into Medicare Part D. The Democrats’ health-care bill would make the subsidy “less valuable to employers, like Verizon” — according to an internal Verizon memo obtained by National Review Online — “and as a result, may have significant implications for both retirees and employers.” In other words, Verizon and other employers will probably drop their retiree prescription-drug coverage. After all, why pay for something if the government is offering to pick up the tab?


If we do see a large number of employers eliminate prescription-drug coverage from their retiree benefit packages, it will mean two things. First, it will illustrate once again the emptiness of Barack Obama’s promise that if you like your health-care plan, you can keep it. Retirees whose companies cut their prescription-drug plans will have to switch to Medicare Part D. According to a study put out by the American Benefits Council, “Employer plans generally provide much better protection than the standard Medicare PDP benefit, but these employers are likely to drop their plans in favor of commercial PDP plans because of the new law’s impact on earnings.”


Second, it reveals yet another budgetary gimmick in a bill full of them. The Congressional Budget Office, under instructions from the Democrats, scored the tax change as adding $5.4 billion in revenue to the bill. If Verizon and others drop their retiree drug plans, then not only won’t that revenue materialize, but Medicare Part D outlays can be expected to go up substantially: According to a report from the Employee Benefit Research Institute, it costs the government twice as much to provide coverage under Medicare Part D than to subsidize a private plan.


A spokesman for the American Benefits Council, which started sounding the alarms on this issue months ago, tells me the group tried to get CBO to score the provision more accurately, but that “CBO can only score what’s in front of them, and we couldn’t get them to account for retirees that would be added to Part D.” Employers dropping their plans could not only erase the $5.4 billion in revenue scored for the proposal, but end up adding billions more to the cost of the bill.


The bump that Obama and the Democrats hoped to receive from the health-care bill’s passage has been barely noticeable; Rasmussen is already out with a poll in which 55 percent of respondents favor repealing the health-care bill. A lawsuit filed by 13 state attorneys general promises to pull the unpopular individual mandate into the spotlight. A provision purporting to immediately prohibit insurance companies from excluding children with preexisting conditions does not appear to work as intended. And the bill’s defenders appear terrified to admit in public that the agency tasked with enforcing the bill’s mandatory-coverage provisions will be the Internal Revenue Service.


In other words, the time bombs have already started to go off, and with 2,000-plus pages to work with, activists are sure to find plenty to keep them motivated for the next eight months.

Let me get this straight......we're trying to pass a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president that also hasn't read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke.

What could possibly go wrong?

The Rationing Commission

Meet the unelected body that will dictate future medical decisions.

As usual, the most dangerous parts of ObamaCare aren't receiving the scrutiny they deserve—and one of the least examined is a new commission to tell Congress how to control health spending. Democrats are quietly attempting to impose a "global budget" on Medicare, with radical implications for U.S. medicine.

Like most of Europe, the various health bills stipulate that Congress will arbitrarily decide how much to spend on health care for seniors every year—and then invest an unelected board with extraordinary powers to dictate what is covered and how it will be paid for. White House budget director Peter Orszag calls this Medicare commission "critical to our fiscal future" and "one of the most potent reforms."

On that last score, he's right. Prominent health economist Alain Enthoven has likened a global budget to "bombing from 35,000 feet, where you don't see the faces of the people you kill."

As envisioned by the Senate Finance Committee, the commission—all 15 members appointed by the President—would have to meet certain budget targets each year. Starting in 2015, Medicare could not grow more rapidly on a per capita basis than by a measure of inflation. After 2019, it could only grow at the same rate as GDP, plus one percentage point.

The theory is to let technocrats set Medicare payments free from political pressure, as with the military base closing commissions. But that process presented recommendations to Congress for an up-or-down vote. Here, the commission's decisions would go into effect automatically if Congress couldn't agree within six months on different cuts that met the same target. The board's decisions would not be subject to ordinary notice-and-comment rule-making, or even judicial review.

Yet if the goal really is political insulation, then the Medicare Commission is off to a bad start. To avoid a senior revolt, Finance Chairman Max Baucus decided to bar his creation from reducing benefits or raising the eligibility age, which meant that it could only cut costs by tightening Medicare price controls on doctors and hospitals. Doctors and hospitals, naturally, were furious.

President Obama and his Democratic machine has spent the last few months forcing their idea of health care reform through the legislative process. Two of the major selling points used again and again were coverage for those with pre-existing conditions and the guarantee that sick children would be covered almost immediately by the new law. Just two days after the president signed his monstrous health care overhaul into law, we find out he was not even telling the truth about that. (source)


Last Friday in a speech at George Mason University in Virginia, Mr. Obama said of the pending bill, "This is a patient's bill of rights on steroids. Starting this year, thousands of uninsured Americans with pre-existing conditions will be able to purchase health insurance, some for the very first time. Starting this year, insurance companies will be banned forever from denying coverage to children with pre-existing conditions."

Obamacare Amounts to Ponzi Welfare Scheme

Barack Obama hopes his famous healthcare victory will mark him as a transformative president. History, however, may judge it to have been his missed opportunity to be one.

Healthcare will not be seriously revisited for at least a generation, so the system's costliest defect — untaxed employer-provided insurance, which entangles a high-inflation commodity, healthcare, with the wage system — remains.

Ex CBO Director: Healthcare bill will increase deficit by $562 billion....
 
Quote:


The Real Arithmetic of Health Care Reform
 

By DOUGLAS HOLTZ-EAKIN
Published: March 20, 2010
Arlington, Va.

On Thursday, the Congressional Budget Office reported that, if enacted, the latest health care reform legislation would, over the next 10 years, cost about $950 billion, but because it would raise some revenues and lower some costs, it would also lower federal deficits by $138 billion. In other words, a bill that would set up two new entitlement spending programs — health insurance subsidies and long-term health care benefits — would actually improve the nation’s bottom line.

Could this really be true? How can the budget office give a green light to a bill that commits the federal government to spending nearly $1 trillion more over the next 10 years?

The answer, unfortunately, is that the budget office is required to take written legislation at face value and not second-guess the plausibility of what it is handed. So fantasy in, fantasy out.

In reality, if you strip out all the gimmicks and budgetary games and rework the calculus, a wholly different picture emerges: The health care reform legislation would raise, not lower, federal deficits, by $562 billion.

Gimmick No. 1 is the way the bill front-loads revenues and backloads spending. That is, the taxes and fees it calls for are set to begin immediately, but its new subsidies would be deferred so that the first 10 years of revenue would be used to pay for only 6 years of spending.

Even worse, some costs are left out entirely. To operate the new programs over the first 10 years, future Congresses would need to vote for $114 billion in additional annual spending. But this so-called discretionary spending is excluded from the Congressional Budget Office’s tabulation.

Consider, too, the fate of the $70 billion in premiums expected to be raised in the first 10 years for the legislation’s new long-term health care insurance program. This money is counted as deficit reduction, but the benefits it is intended to finance are assumed not to materialize in the first 10 years, so they appear nowhere in the cost of the legislation.

Another vivid example of how the legislation manipulates revenues is the provision to have corporations deposit $8 billion in higher estimated tax payments in 2014, thereby meeting fiscal targets for the first five years. But since the corporations’ actual taxes would be unchanged, the money would need to be refunded the next year. The net effect is simply to shift dollars from 2015 to 2014.

In addition to this accounting sleight of hand, the legislation would blithely rob Peter to pay Paul. For example, it would use $53 billion in anticipated higher Social Security taxes to offset health care spending. Social Security revenues are expected to rise as employers shift from paying for health insurance to paying higher wages. But if workers have higher wages, they will also qualify for increased Social Security benefits when they retire. So the extra money raised from payroll taxes is already spoken for. (Indeed, it is unlikely to be enough to keep Social Security solvent.) It cannot be used for lowering the deficit.

A government takeover of all federally financed student loans — which obviously has nothing to do with health care — is rolled into the bill because it is expected to generate $19 billion in deficit reduction.

Finally, in perhaps the most amazing bit of unrealistic accounting, the legislation proposes to trim $463 billion from Medicare spending and use it to finance insurance subsidies. But Medicare is already bleeding red ink, and the health care bill has no reforms that would enable the program to operate more cheaply in the future. Instead, Congress is likely to continue to regularly override scheduled cuts in payments to Medicare doctors and other providers.

Removing the unrealistic annual Medicare savings ($463 billion) and the stolen annual revenues from Social Security and long-term care insurance ($123 billion), and adding in the annual spending that so far is not accounted for ($114 billion) quickly generates additional deficits of $562 billion in the first 10 years. And the nation would be on the hook for two more entitlement programs rapidly expanding as far as the eye can see.

The bottom line is that Congress would spend a lot more; steal funds from education, Social Security and long-term care to cover the gap; and promise that future Congresses will make up for it by taxing more and spending less.

The stakes could not be higher. As documented in another recent budget office analysis, the federal deficit is already expected to exceed at least $700 billion every year over the next decade, doubling the national debt to more than $20 trillion. By 2020, the federal deficit — the amount the government must borrow to meet its expenses — is projected to be $1.2 trillion, $900 billion of which represents interest on previous debt.

The health care legislation would only increase this crushing debt. It is a clear indication that Congress does not realize the urgency of putting America’s fiscal house in order.



Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who was the director of the Congressional Budget Office from 2003 to 2005, is the president of the American Action Forum, a policy institute.

Could We Get Rid of It?-3/19 Commentary Magazine, by Jennifer Rubin-- Reader Renee asks me whether ObamaCare can be repealed if signed into law. The short answer is yes. First off, if they utilize the ” deem and pass” Slaughter Rule, there will be court challenges. And those states that pass prohibitions on the requirement for citizens to buy insurance will challenge the law as well. There will also be other legal challenges. But really, all it would take is a new law. But what about those “you can’t repeal this” provisions and “supermajority requirements” snuck into the nooks and crannies of ObamaCare? They really are meaningless. ...
