Republicans Blocking Surgeon General Nominee

Another obstruction from the Party of No!
Obama's nominee for Surgeon General Regina Benjamin is being blocked by the usual suspects: John Cornyn, Chuck Grassley, Jon Kyl, Mike Enzi, Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, John Thune, Lamar Alexander. They are blocking her because the White House called out Humana for scaring seniors with mailers warning them against health reform.
Meanwhile, health insurance execs are lobbying to keep their pay. They're concerned health reform will lower their salaries.
