    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.
    I don't think you know what the role of a surgeon general is.

    I know exactly what it is.

    Is the Surgeons General's office under HHS? Yes it is. Is there a staff there? Yes there is. Do they have an interim SG? Yes they do. Did the last Surgeon General spend a ridiculous amount of time focusing on breastfeeding? Yes she did.

    Try again. And please tell me how organizing a response to the Ebola issue is a 1-person job.

    Maybe the surgeon General can help take so pressure off the head of CDC.

    So it isn't a 1-person job then, is it?

    Would it hurt to have a surgeon general right now?

    Obviously not. But "not hurting" isn't relevant. This Ebola problem isn't ongoing because of and wasn't caused by the lack of a Surgeon General.

    Partisan gridlock? All he needs to be confirmed is a simple majority in the Senate, and the Dems have the numbers.

    And we do have a Surgeon General, btw -- an "acting" SG. The position is not vacant, and he's as much up to the task as the guy who's been nominated.

    Some of us dont consider bad laws to be progress, and so preventing their implementation is absolutely valid.
