Before she became first Lady Michelle Obama was had a $317,000 job as Vice President of the University of Chicago Medical Center. At her job she helped to create a program where the uninsured get sent to a different hospital. Imagine that, while her husband was pushing universal healthcare Michelle was doing her utmost to make sure the poor didn't come to her hospital.
It seems as if the FLOTUS got more than a salary for her work denying health care to the poor. According to The Amateur author Edward Klein, Dr. Eric Whitaker vice president of the University of Chicago Medical Center (and member of Obamas inner circle) was the person who sent the email to a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ, offering Wright a bribe to just shut up.
On an appearance on Sean Hannitys radio show on Monday, The Amateur author Edward Klein revealed the name of a close ally of President Barack Obama that his book alleges offered a $150,000 bribe to Rev. Jeremiah Wright to be quiet until after the 2008 election
...Don't feel bad about Dr. Whitaker being outed, he was nicely rewarded for his attempted to convince Wright to shut up till after the election.
Whitaker, runs the Urban Health Initiative (UHI), at the University of Chicago Medical Center an initiative who coincidentally received a $5,900,000 grant of our money.
The UHI was one of only 26 programs out of 3,000 applications to receive a slice of the $1 billion in taxpayer money from the executives We Cant Wait initiative, which is aimed at spurring job growth via executive action, reported Keith Koffler at White House Dossier.
HHS has denied any White House involvement in the decision, but the president will have a tough time feigning surprise given his deep ties to the UHI:Yesterday President Obama called for more regulation of "Wall Street" because of the JP Morgan bad deal which lost $2 billion so far with another billion on the way. JP Morgan which has over $2 trillion in assets can handle the loss.
-Eric Whitaker runs the UHI, has known the president since his days at Harvard Law and occasionally vacations with the Obamas.
-Michelle Obama launched the UHI while working as an executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center, which runs the program.
- Valerie Jarrett, the presidents senior adviser, was the chairman of the University of Chicago Medical Center board of trustees until she resigned her post to join the White House.
- David Axelrod, now-communications director for the Obama campaign, provided public relations services to the UHI after Michelle Obama recommended that he be hired in 2006.
Barack Obama has added over $5 trillion to the deficit and continues to enrich his buddies like Dr. Whitaker. Allow me to ask this question, who needs additional regulation, the banks, or the President?

These people are trash and scum. She made 300k in a country she’d never was proud of? FU, fat #ssed cow!
Klein also said Wright told him he made it comfortable for Obama to accept Christianity without having renounce his Islamic background, which Klein said he has on tape.Background? One doesn't have to denounce a background!
What he really meant was Obama didn't have to renounce his Islamic faith to become a Christian-in-name-only at Wright's Black Liberation church.
What a fraud of a job (and employee) in the first place. As if she was qualified to be a medical center executive.

Stephanololis had to correct baraq hussein when he spoke of his muslim faith.
How many of us make a mistake about identifying our faith whatever it is?
That’s kind of like not knowing how many states are in the union.
And the dims selected him.
It sent a chill up my spine when Stephy did that.
It will be delicious when this fraud falls. It’s coming. The MSM is going to be outed along with Barry.
She has no qualifications to be the authority on nutrition and health... advising on concern of food deserts, (telling) people, restaurants and food industry what to eat or serve.
..Shortly after Barack Obama joined the U.S. Senate in 2005, the medical center promoted Michelle Obama to vice president of community and external relations, and more than doubled her salary. She is now on leave from the $317,000-a-year post, in which she sought to bridge the gap between the wealthy institution and its poorer neighbors. The hospital declined to discuss the budget for her program or her input into budgetary decisions.
...Hospital board member Kelly R. Welsh is executive vice president at Northern Trust Co., which extended the couple a $1.3 million home mortgage shortly after Barack Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate. Dan Shomon, Barack Obama's former campaign manager, is a university lobbyist.
