(Politico)   Remember that 24-year-old former Trump campaign worker who was appointed deputy drug czar without any relevant policy experience? He's now landed a mid-level position at HUD, focusing on opioid policy. Probably after citing his experience as deputy drug czar   ( politico.com) divider line

He must have some incriminating information. Donnie doesn't usually have a problem kicking people to the curb. Well, as long as he can get someone else to do it.

So, a mid-level position in Two Scoops' administration, does that mean they get donuts as well as the coffee?

You could really come to the conclusion that they are deliberately trying not to solve a problem that's actually obvious to everyone. Once again.

New opioid policy when Dem takes office: "No opiate pain medications will be prescribed, except for palliative care, unless all other medications have failed. Any doctor found to to be handing them out like farking halloween candy shall be lined up and shot."

I can wish, right?

For some reason now lost, I once had a glimmer of hope that Trump would end up stabbing the opiate prescription monster through the heart with a stake. It would of course be a blind squirrel/nut situation, but I'd heartily thank him for it anyway. Of course this is the worst timeline, so...

Long term use of opioids should never be left to any primary care provider. Pain management doctors should be the ones to set and prescribe the usage. The most primary care doctors should ever give out is a 5-7 day supply and never a schedule II or I. There are many legitimate needs for opioid use but primary care doctors are not usually trained for these.

Personally, I would prefer that opioids be distributed freely amongst Trump voters as long as they agree to to not take the Narcan shot when they OD

Florida is FINALLY going to put that into law.  I have one primary care doctor who prescribed his patient percocet, methadone, extended release morphine, and soma because the patient hurt their back in a car accident.  No MRI or imaging, no history of opioid use.  The doctor just figured they should give the patient an immediate, long acting immediate, and ER pain med to cover their bases.  Those doctor's should not even have controlled prescribing authority.

That's one way to make sure they can't make it to the voting booth to screw everyone over again.

I wonder where the girl with the 88 tattoo on her hand ended up.  Maybe she grew up and became Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Weyeneth will start at HUD as a general schedule 9 employee.

In the DC area, that's hardly "mid-level." I've been here 18 years, and can't remember the last time I met anyone under GS-13. GS-9 is like sub-peon in these parts.

You're expecting a Hillary campaign worker to get the gig?

So he gets a job he's not qualified to do, even remotely.  Then it turns out he lied on his resume, and was allowed to step down.  Now he still works for the same employer, but in a different position?  Trump really is recruiting the best people.  Do you know what we do when people lie on their applications?  We fire them, report them to the State, and blacklist them forever.  But, hey, we're just a tiny hospital - it's not like we're doing national-level work that will affect millions.  I guess they can't afford to be so tough on liars and cheaters...oh wait, Republicans...nevermind.

I doubt it. A Hillary campaigner might be intelligent enough to be qualified at something.

These people are harder to get rid of than roaches. They're more on the radioactive mutant bed bug difficulty level.

This. The couple times I've had surgery nothing but opiate pain killers worked for the week or 2 of pain I had afterwords.
