yep... at it again.. by another loyal Bushie with no experience Politicizing health 101. The Washington Post revealed this weekend that William Steiger â€” a Bush family friend with no experience in public health â€” blocked a surgeon generalâ€™s report because it did not trumpet the administrationâ€™s accomplishments. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) obtained a copy of Steigerâ€™s edits and compared them to the original version. Hereâ€™s a slice of what he found: A comparison of the two drafts reveals striking differences. Dr. Carmonaâ€™s draft includes extended discussions of the impacts of womenâ€™s rights, poverty, climate change, tobacco, and obesity on global health. Mr. Steigerâ€™s draft omits or barely mentions these topics. Dr. Carmonaâ€™s draft describes a U.N. declaration that establishes health as a human right. Mr. Steigerâ€™s draft omits this language. Dr. Carmonaâ€™s draft contains references to condoms. Mr. Steigerâ€™s draft does not mention condoms. Mr. Steigerâ€™s draft is considerably shorter than Dr. Carmonaâ€™s draft: 11,400 words compared to 17,000. Despite the shorter length of Mr. Steigerâ€™s draft, it contains many more references to President Bush (ten references) than does Dr. Carmonaâ€™s draft (two references). Mr. Steigerâ€™s draft also contains extended discussions of U.S. efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. Carmonaâ€™s draft does not.
