    I'm not McConnell's biggest fan, but it would be a refreshing change of pace to have a Majority Leader who is more focused to passing legislation than calling the Koch Brothers "un-American" or what name a certain football team has.

    Why is not having a Surgeon General a problem specifically?

    I was only responding to your comment that Obama hasn't been able to push anything. I never said the repubes would accomplish anything.

    McConnell is a spineless POS RINO. But why focus on his good qualities?

    If you believe the President and the CDC - it sounds as though everything is under control and a SG isn't needed.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Why specifically?

    Is the HHS incapable of handling it? The Surgeon General is under them.

    Is the staff of the Surgeon General department incapable of doing their jobs?

    Is this a 1-person job only?

    Yes, Republicans may win some battles but Democrats have already won the war. Americans are hooked on big government like a junkie on heroin.

    the days of small government are over. Every election is just going to be which party promises more of it, which will always favor Democrats.

    " Vote for me and I'll give you more free gmmit sh#T" is a very effective campaign.

    The surgeon general serves as a source leadership postion in charge of coordinating a response to health crisis's.

    Would you deprive a ship of its cheif engineer?

    So if a ship's Chief Engineer was taken away, the ship would just stop dead in the water, yes, and nobody would be able to do anything. No crew member, nothing. Unless you have that official Chief Engineer, everything stops. Is that about right?

    If a pilot became sick during a commercial flight, I guess the plane would plummet from the skies too.

    The last Surgeon General did a lot in her time in office. Too bad most of it was centered around breastfeeding, which we all know is a national crisis.
