Donald Berwick, you will recall, is President Obama’s [unconfirmed] head of ObamaCare. Seeking to explain why ObamaCare is the best way to make medical care more efficient, Dr. Berwick wrote an editorial in the Wall Street Journal. In his latest blog post, Daniel Mitchell is dumbfounded at Donald Berwick’s ignorance – if that is what it is. Here’s how Mr. Mitchell expressed it:
I have no idea whether Berwick realizes that he has inverted reality, so I can’t decide whether he is cynically dishonest or hopelessly clueless. All I can say with certainty is that what he wrote is sort of like asserting “gravity causes things to fall, so therefore this rock will rise when I let go of it.”
That lefties like Dr. Berwick are clueless is not surprising and scarcely deserving of too much attention. However, I particularly liked Mitchell’s comparison.
