Latest victim of Obama’s Capitol City Hunger Games

Obama_king-290x290Didn’t anyone tell D.C. official that Washington is a federal city now known as King Obama’s realm?

You are still, technically free to speak but, as with your insurance plans and doctor, you can’t keep your job unless Obama likes the job you’re doing for him:

A day after he questioned President Obama’s decision to unwind a major tenet of the health-care law and said the nation’s 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. Gray’s (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.’ ”

White was one of the first insurance commissioners in the nation last week to push back against Obama’s attempt to smooth over part of the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act: millions of unexpected cancellations of insurance plans.

The Capitol City is not a right to work state. Here’s hoping that former Commissioner White goes all Katniss Everdeen on D.C. with a Hunger Game in court charging the District government with retaliatory discharge.
