Senator Rand Paul is placing a procedural hold on President Obama’s nominee for Surgeon General and he sat down with Fox’s Shannon Bream to discuss why. Not only is Vivek Murthy vastly under qualified for the position, but he is a huge supporter and pusher for strict gun control. As Paul pointed out, the position of Surgeon General is a non-partisan one. It should not be used to push an agenda that is Republican or Democrat; rather, we should all be able to get behind a Surgeon General because their aim is to advocate for public health.

“Think about what surgeon generals have done through history. Being against smoking, being against obesity. Things that are bad for your health. That’s a reasonable public health concern. But to be someone who’s beating up on the Bill of Rights? That’s not what we need. He truly is a basher of the Bill of Rights.”
It’s just like Obama to nominate a Surgeon General who wants to take away our guns. The more defenseless we are, the easier it will be for him to enact Martial Law. This President’s refusal to work with anyone who disagrees with him is disgusting. He’s like that kid on the play ground that nobody wants to play with because he has to have everything his way. He needs to come with a warning label that reads “Doesn’t Play Well With Others”.
Obama doesn’t care that Murthy is under qualified for the position of Surgeon General. The only thing that matters to him is that Murthy’s agenda is aligned with the current administration’s. And it certainly is. Murthy was a huge campaigner for ObamaCare and it seems he is another one of the sheeple ready to sign his soul away in order to do the President’s bidding. Thankfully, Rand Paul is attempting to stand in the way of that.
