A day after he questioned President Obamas decision to unwind a major tenet of the health-care law and said the nations capital might not go along, D.C. insurance commissioner William P. White was fired.
White was called into a meeting Friday afternoon with one of Mayor Vincent C. Grays (D) top deputies and told that the mayor wants to go in a different direction, White told The Washington Post on Saturday.
White said the mayoral deputy never said that he was being asked to leave because of his Thursday statement on health care. But he said the timing was hard to ignore. Roughly 24 hours later, White said, he was basically being told, Thanks, but no thanks. (continued)

Depending on government can be very very threatening
So much for Diversity.
Ain’t police states a b*tch? I never dreamed it would ever happen here.
Off to the labor camp with this counter revolutionary running dog lackey of the Bourgeoisie!
He should be gratefull.
Somebody could have given him a heart attack.
Valerie Jarrett strikes again.
Let me take a wild, wild guess; the fired employee is a Caucasian man, maybe even known to be a Christian. The president has no problem firing individuals who fit that description, he’ll even do it publicly if he feels like it.
I could be wrong. Regardless of race, this firing shows insecurity and an intolerance for differing points of view.
It most certainly is “THE Chicago way”.
He’s lucky he didn’t get Fosterized.
“Let me take a wild, wild guess”
Nope, he is African American. He was recently given a new nick name by DC Dems, Uncle Tom.
He failed to kiss the King’s ring. That is a no no in the O kingdom.
Obama had promised that Americans who liked their insurance plans would be able to keep them. When that turned out to not be the case, Obama apologized last week.
I must've missed that.
Actually, a lot of these commissioners speaking out against Obama's move are Democrats.
They're mad because Obama's pronouncement is going to interfere with their exchanges while they're trying to get as many paying customers as possible to implement socialism.
Maybe he can now get some food stamps and unemployment.
He had the nerve to criticize Party Secretary! Off to the Gulag!
That is what a majot=rity of US Citizens think about Bummer.Why can’t we fire him TOMORROW!!!
William White is black and is probably a regular Dem, but one with more common sense than the rest of the pack.
Obama is trying to make everything about race. This is not about race. Let’s not fall into his trap.
You are correct. Resist We Much! to use a discarded quote.
