Senator Chuck Grassley issued the following comment about the President’s nomination today of Marilyn Tavenner to lead the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

“Mr. Berwick’s nomination was derailed by the administration’s unwillingness to let the nominee provide the committee with legitimate information necessary for us to serve our role in reviewing the nomination.   Rather than provide us with information, the administration recess appointed Berwick.  Hopefully, the administration has learned from its mistake and will follow the regular process with this nomination, as part of our system of checks and balances.”
