Obama appoints new Medicaid-Medicare Chief

President Obama has nominated Dr. Donald Berwick to be the new Administrator for Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. There has been no permanent administrator since 2006.

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer stated via blog post, "Many Republicans in Congress have made it clear in recent weeks that they were going to stall the nomination as long as they could, solely to score political points. But with the agency facing new responsibilities to protect seniors' care under the Affordable Care Act, there's no time to waste with Washington game-playing."
