Opposition

Say No To Gupta

Apparently not everyone is as enamored with Sanjay Gupta's striking eyes and disarming smile, especially Representative John Conyers. The Judiciary Committee chairman wrote a letter to his Democratic colleagues today urging them to publically oppose the CNN correspondent’s potential nomination for Surgeon General. Gupta, Conyers wrote, "lacks the requisite experience needed to oversee the federal agency that provides crucial health care assistance." Conyers, whose opposition represents one of the first critical takes on the potential Gupta nomination form the Hill, throws his hat in with Paul Krugman, who came out against the Gupta nomination on Tuesday.
