State can do better with high-ranking physicians

Ridiculous, outrageous, yes. The Department of Health for the state of New Mexico has hired two doctors. One pleaded no contest to a felony for obtaining controlled substance by fraud having filled more than 300 fraudulent prescriptions. The other doctor’s drug abuse dates back to 1991, again in 2009 when his license to practice was stripped in Washington after he pleaded guilty to a federal felony by misrepresentation, deception and subterfuge regarding controlled substance.

    it may not be an improvement but would not a successful impeachment result in the loss of his cushy retirement plan? at least then the money could be spent on something worthwhile.........

    I'm certainly not a fan of Obama's, but impeaching him gets us a President Biden. I'm not convinced that would be an improvement.

    Oh oh. Watch out, Clinton. All the Obama faithful are firing up their laptops, brewing their organic coffee, and gettin' ready to eviscerate you. Here come the accusations that you are a Fox News deadhead who supports a war on women, starving the children and elderly, and want nothing but war, pestilence, pollution and inequality. Oh, and you hate HIM Because you are likely a racist, and you probably talk like a white truck driver from Oklahoma.......wait for it.........
