Republicans call the recess appointment an insult to the American people. The President waited nearly a year to recommend Dr. Berwick but now that Congress is on recess… Berwick need to be on the job immediately and can not wait for a lengthily confirmation process. May be it is because the Doctor is a Fan of rationing health care, something the American public is against. Here is another example of the President circumventing the advise and consent clause in the Constitution.
Typical behavior in politics is to make the most objectionable appointments during Congressional Recess. The self proclaimed post partisan president takes a page out of President Bush playbook. A book he campaigned against. So much for fundamental change coming to Washington. Looks like more of the same from this reporters desk.
