D.C. insurance commissioner fired a day after questioning Obamacare fix


#1

From the Washington Post:
A day after he questioned President Obama’s decision to unwind a major tenet of the health-care law and said the nation’s capital might not go along, D.C. insurance commissioner William P. White was fired.

White was called into a meeting Friday afternoon with one of Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s (D) top deputies and told that the mayor “wants to go in a different direction,” White told The Washington Post on Saturday.

White said the mayoral deputy never said that he was being asked to leave because of his Thursday statement on health care. But he said the timing was hard to ignore. Roughly 24 hours later, White said, he was “basically being told, ‘Thanks, but no thanks.’ ”
Dude should have known better than to question this President's plan...government people are not allowed to do that. Even if the government they work for is the DC government.

(Caveat: had he questioned a Republican President's plan, that would have been OK. Remember, this is DC we're talking about here)

No one is supposed to point out or notice that the emperor has no clothes.

When there is bad press, someone always gets fired. The public is supposed to be impressed with the firing, I guess. Won't change much in the long-run though.

Don't question the emperor! :rolleyes:
