The New Crony Surgeon General and Obamacare

PEU Report notes that President Barak Obama will nominate Vivek Murthy, M.D. for Surgeon General. Besides being a talented hospitalist at Boston's Brigham & Women's, Murthy is chair of Doctors for America.

Dr. Murthy's Doctors for America is wedded to Obamacare in both design and implementation.

According to PEU, President Obama's first Surgeon General had a heart for caring for people regardless of their insurance status.  Dr. Murthy looks like a pure political appointment, a reward for a loyal follower.

PEU writes:
 If approved by the U.S. Senate, America will have two years of Dr. Vivek Murthy as Surgeon General.  Watch what happens to employer sponsored health insurance over that period and pay attention to private equity underwriters with ex-politicians making hay over the unique features of PPACA [Obamacare].  Those who set up the field know how to profit from it. 
In the immortal words of Vice President Joe Biden, "This is a big fucking deal!" --Biden caught on an open mic congratulating President Barack Obama during the health care signing ceremony, Washington, D.C., March 23, 2010

    Speaking of Boston RW, the senate here in the glorious capital of Massachusetts is rushing through a highest in the nation minimum wage bill next week.
    Start looking into it.
