Anyone surprised by this story in WaPo?
I didn't think so. Pretty damn pathetic when you can't release a Surgeon Generals report because it doesn't cater to BushCo's bullshit objectives. What really chaps my hide is that the freak who is blocking this report has no background in public health or medicine.
Guess any asshole appointee can pull this crap with Bush's blessings. William R. Steiger your a real prick...your family is probably very proud of you. The report contained information on the following, per WaPo:
The report described the link between poverty and poor health, urged the U.S. government to help combat widespread diseases as a key aim of its foreign policy, and called on corporations to help improve health conditions in the countries where they operate. A copy of the report was obtained by the Washington Post.
Just another exercise to keep us in the dark and feed us bullshit by the folks leading our country.
