President Obama nominates Vivek Hallegere Murthy for surgeon general
By JENNIFER HABERKORN | 11/14/13 6:16 PM EST
The White House said Thursday that President Barack Obama intends to nominate Vivek Hallegere Murthy to be the next surgeon general.
He is the co-founder and president of Doctors for America, which began as Doctors for Obama in 2008. He is a hospitalist attending physician and instructor in medicine at Brigham and Womens Hospital at Harvard Medical School.
He would succeed Regina Benjamin, who announced her resignation from the post in July.
"Doctors for America" is a national movement of physicians and medical students in the United States with a stated goal of improving affordable health care access. The movement was started in 2008 as "Doctors for Obama" and rapidly grew to 10,000 members within a few months."
"Obama is basically demanding that insurers reinstate policies he himself forced them to cancel. Should any company refuse, it will obviously be labeled the real villain by partisan leftists dedicated to saving this troubled president and his namesake law."
Obama to Meet With Health Insurance CEOs WASHINGTON November 15, 2013 (AP) By JULIE PACE AP White House Correspondent Associated Press
President Barack Obama, trying to rescue his much-criticized health care program, is set to discuss strategy with health insurance CEOs.
Did Sanjay Gupta turn the job down?
Why is it that he can never appoint someone who looks or sounds American?
That name contains several misspellings.
I’ll miss Dr. Regina Benjamin.
Her personal campaign to wipe out anorexia was inspiring.
Because Obama doesn’t look or sound “American”.......
“Viveck Hallegre Murthy”....Is that a name or a disease?
He graduated from med school in 2003 and finished his residency in 2006 - he does NOT have enough experience for this job!!!! His med-tech ideas did not take off so all he has for his resume is “lead Obamacare pimp”.
What a disaster this is going to be.
Yet another butt-smoothing loser.
I miss Dr. Jocelyn Elders.
She was good for plenty of laughs.
Condoms Helped Clinton Reduce Abortions, Former Surgeon General Says
July 7, 2008 - 7:06 PM
By Penny Starr (CNSNews.com) - Former Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders said
she agrees with former President Bill Clinton's claim at a Sunday rally at Steubenville High School in Ohio that he helped reduce abortions during his administration.
"I think he very much supported sexual health and supported the use of contraceptives for women who needed them," Elders told Cybercast News Service, adding that condoms also were used as protection against AIDS Joycelyn Elders
Joycelyn Elders quotes "- I came there as prime steak and now I feel like low-grade hamburger."
"If I could be the "condom queen" and get every young person who engaged in sex to use a condom in the United States, I would wear a crown on my head with a condom on it! I would!"
She was a real gem.
Benjamin was invisible, surprisingly. Don’t think I ever saw her pimping for Obamacare.
Dr. Vivek Hallegere Murthy, a 36-year-old
Zero real world experience. Same as obama had!
This man, if he were in the Corps he is being asked to lead, would still be an O-4 struggling to make Commander - but Obama is going to pin 3 stars on him like he worthy of a rank people spend more than 35 years trying to achieve.
We all know this is a political payback....this guy was the ‘founder’ and Pres. of this DR’s Org. and a political arm of the Obama election in 2008.....has nothing to do with his experience but as a political payback ‘only’.
Besides since when does Obama look at any-ones experience? He's had none himself so it's not a matter of experience e...it's all political payback just as they said :
