Politicizing health 101
yep... at it again.. by another loyal Bushie with no experience
Politicizing health 101. The Washington Post revealed this weekend that William Steiger — a Bush family friend with no experience in public health — blocked a surgeon general’s report because it did not trumpet the administration’s accomplishments. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) obtained a copy of Steiger’s edits and compared them to the original version. Here’s a slice of what he found:
A comparison of the two drafts reveals striking differences. Dr. Carmona’s draft includes extended discussions of the impacts of women’s rights, poverty, climate change, tobacco, and obesity on global health. Mr. Steiger’s draft omits or barely mentions these topics. Dr. Carmona’s draft describes a U.N. declaration that establishes health as a human right. Mr. Steiger’s draft omits this language. Dr. Carmona’s draft contains references to condoms. Mr. Steiger’s draft does not mention condoms.

Unfortunately, I have come to expect this sort of stuff from this administration.. these guys have an intense need to leave their footprints wherever they can.. and want to do it often.
