    Exactly you want to go back to the zero we started with. I get that, I believe I addressed. Thank you for proving my point. Bless your heart.

    There is plenty wrong with the status quo ante, but O should have heeded the maxim, "Do no harm." No fix can be applied until repeal has been accomplished.

    I don't like the ACA or the president. I think both are terrible for the Republic. However, I think it is wrong to try and spin this as politically motivated, especially when there is no evidence that such occurred.

    If what is being reported is true, the former insurance commissioner brought it on himself.

    You cannot criticize or make fun of dear leader. That should be punishable by a tar and feathering, then death by firing squad.

    So that's how you get fired in this administration....incompetence? all's good, question policy? pink slip time.

    You mean a political appointee was fired because of his political statements?

    Gee, that's never happened before!

    Bless your heart, the ignorance of your posts, leaves even the most astute speechless as to where to begin to repair the lack of knowledge. We didn't start from zero, unlike yourself, the rest of us have lived a long life and weren't born last night. The vast majority of the population had healthcare insurance. A tiny minority had little or no insurance.


    Bless your heart.

    And most of that minority were people like college kids who.didn't need it, people making over 50k a year who could pay out of pocket and chose not to buy insurance, and illegal immigrants.

    The right wings mindless blame game is getting very trite. Congress controls DC and the insurance commissioner serves at the pleasure of the elected Mayor ......not the president.


    ...Despite the fact that Washington, D.C. has an elected mayor and city council, significant congressional oversight of the District's local affairs remains in place. The Congress can also revoke the city's home rule charter at any time or pass legislation in regards to the city without approval from residents or the local government.[24] District leaders have long complained about the interventionist approach that members of Congress, who have no particular attachment to the city, take in dealing with the District's local affairs. ....

    From the OP....


    "....A senior city official said White’s initial statement was sent to the mayoral communications director, Pedro Ribeiro, only minutes before it was issued publicly. It was not sent to Deputy Mayor Victor Hoskins, White’s immediate supervisor, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak about a personnel matter.

    A formal statement critical of the president should have been closely vetted and approved by the mayor’s office, and White refused to acknowledge the misstep, the official said. White said Hoskins fired him Friday.....

    White said he had known since he took the job that he served at the pleasure of the mayor. He said he was proud of his record and would have stayed.

    On the president’s proposed health-care fix, he said: “I wasn’t saying I was against it, I also was saying I didn’t know enough to fully support it — I want to be clear, and I think it is, I was not speaking for Mayor Gray.”...."

    Another righty non-issue scandle bites the dust.

    It's not as much an "issue" as much as it is a window into how progressives suck up to power.
