Political hire issues statement questioning Obama--he's fired the next day

William P. White was insurance commissioner for Washington D.C.  After Obama announced he would unilaterally change yet another major provision of the law called Obamacare, White issued the following statement:
The action today undercuts the purpose of the exchanges, including the District’s DC Health Link, by creating exceptions that make it more difficult for them to operate.
White cited a statement issued by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners that Obama's order “threatens to undermine the new market, and may lead to higher premiums and market disruptions in 2014 and beyond,” and added “We concur with that assessment.”

Barely 24 hours later White was called to the office one of D.C. mayor Vincent C. Gray’s (D) top deputies and fired.

On the scale of problems facing this nation, one man's firing may strike you as something too trivial to mention.  I note it because this is yet another example of Democratic politics keeping order in the ranks.  Criticize a decision of Obama's and you're fired.

Hell of a management tool, eh?

Of course my liberal friends will say this is simply right-wing propaganda, that the story is a total lie put out by Faux News.  Yeah, you got me:  It's from that right-wing rag the Washington Post.
