In May, Health Care News discovered video footage of President Obama’s “redistributional” nominee to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Donald Berwick, describing his health care views to an audience in Great Britain.

The footage showed Berwick detailing his affections for the UK’s National Health Service, noting that:
“I am romantic about the NHS; I love it. All I need to do to rediscover the romance is to look at health care in my own country.”

Maybe now is a good time to explain to Donald Trump that all Mexicans who don’t support him, or protest against him are not always connected to La Raza. They aren’t all a part of some larger plot to destroy him, though I’m sure that’s what he believes as a professional conspiracy theorist.
