Bush's Dr. Abstinence forgot to get board certified
Last week, Jessica called stealth Bush appointee, Dr. Eric Keroack, "a ten year-old boy posing as a doctor." While he is an M.D., it turns out he's "not currently certified as an obstetrician-gynecologist." According to an HHS spokesperson, he was certified but "inadvertently missed the recertification deadline."
Sounds like someone I want at the helm of a quarter of a billion dollars.
Kaiser notes that the forgetful doctor: will administer $283 million in annual family planning grants that HHS says are "designed to provide access to contraceptive supplies and information to all who want and need them with priority given to low-income persons."
Which is curious, since, according to a letter sent by House Dems: "We are concerned that Keroack has promoted policies -- including the refusal to distribute contraception even to married women -- that directly conflict with the mission of the federal program."
Jessica has the House and Senate letters, opposing Dr. Keroack.
