"Surgeon General nominee Vivek Murthy" Now all we need is Almalexia Smith and Sortha Jackson for a real life Tribunal.- Auriel
We finally have a Surgeon General after more than a year of a nomination in November getting held up. Vivek Murthy is unquestionably qualified for this role, but it's his statement that gun deaths are bad for the health of the country that held him up. The worst part about this whole thing is that despite a Democratic majority, some Democrats would not vote for him because they were more concerned about getting re-elected than doing what is right for the country and getting a nomination through. Now that those Democrats lost anyways, now they switch their vote around to a yes. Really, shame on Democrats and Republicans alike who are bending to the will of the paranoid NRA's lobbying on the Surgeon General nomination. How dare he declare that guns killing people is bad for keeping people alive.
