    DC insurance commissioner fired after criticizing presidentís proposed ObamaCare fix

    The District of Columbia’s insurance commissioner says he was fired after questioning President Obama’s plan to fix ObamaCare and saying the city might not follow his suggestions.

    Commissioner William White told The Washington Post on Saturday that he was called into Mayor Vincent Gray’s office the prior day and told the Democratic mayor “wants to go in a different direction.”

    Boy you just can't ever quite tell the truth, it's there in the FNC article, though they put it pretty far down so those with short reading spans don't see the bs of the article title.

    However, White and other insurance commissioners across the country have questioned the president’s proposed solution because it could create a mess in the marketplace.

    Some of the top reasons for the commissioners’ objections are: policy prices are already locked in to comply with changes in ObamaCare; an extension could conflict with state-level laws to comply with the law and younger Americans needed to join the federal exchange to keep down costs will wait to enroll.

    White told the newspaper that the deputy mayor who asked him to leave didn’t say the request was about his remarks.

    City officials have not commented on the situation, saying they cannot discuss personnel issues. However, a city official suggested to The Post, on the condition anonymity, that White posted the statement on the city’s website before getting it approved.
    So it seems #1 If Obama or anyone else was doing as you suggest, then a lot more commissioners would be fired, and they aren't.
    #2 The deputy mayor did not suggest it was about remarks, per se.
    #3 City officials suggest it was because the comments weren't approved to be put on the city's website (not a personal site), and I imagine that it's the approval aspect that was his undoing as stated by the anonymous official.

    Unlike the states, DC is a federal property funded by the federal gov't, thus the federal gov't has extreme power over them. Rest assured that the OP is not far off the mark, although I doubt that Obama was personally involved. It is not wise to bite, bark or growl at the hand that feeds you.

    His firing for making the comments is the official reason but it's quite clear that the more likely reason is that he criticized Obama. After all common sense would be to simply delete the comments without fanfare. Now there's a lot of unnecessary controversy that doesn't have to be there if but a bit of common sense was used.

    It's like firing someone because of internal politics. The manager doesn't like the person but he/she gets fired for being late to work.

    You gotta believe what you believe so you can stay angry and immobile instead of addressing or allowing anyone else to try to address the issues of .... everyone. If you folks cared as much as your anger and bile implies, y'all would've solved all these issues when GWB had the office. But you didn't. I think you're all just so pissed off because even with it's bad roll out, it's something, and something can get better. You guys got nothing and no matter what nothing times nothing is still nothing. Negatives can even be multiplied in such a way as to become positive, but nothing... yeah...

    It sounds like a subordinate being out of line, perhaps a long history of such, or perhaps some other political motive, like the Mayor never liked him anyway. I have no doubt whatsoever that it is not SOLELY because of his comment.

    what irony? here I will connect the dots for you
    Tea Party groups get unfairly profiled by the IRS
    Romney campaign contributors get smeared by Obama campaign and flamed on liberal news web sites and audited by the IRS
    News reporters who write critical revealing stories on Obama get investigated by Holder and even called criminal
    and now we have the District of Columbia’s insurance commissioner criticize Obama and gets fired
    we even have Obama quoted "we need to punish our enemies and reward our friends"
    If you don't see a pattern here your being purposely ignorant caused by the drunkenness of the Obama Kool-Aid
