This “rule” (that’s what they call it) was signed by HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius and by Medicare administrator Donald Berwick, who — as the Medical News reports — “will testify before a congressional committee [today] for the first time since President Barack Obama avoided the Senate confirmation process” in appointing him to the post.
Mind you, this 118,072-word “rule” doesn’t explain how anything that Obamacare would create anew would be implemented. It merely explains how HHS intends to implement some parts of Obamacare that relate to two of the four preexisting parts of Medicare (the two smallest parts, by far). To get a real flavor for what life and health would be like under Obamacare, check out the language contained in the “rule” itself. (I dare you.)
