    I don't have a problem with Dr Gupta because I look at the job the SG will have to do for the American People.  His job is going to be to convince Americans to put down the big mac and walk.  He is the one who will have to knock some fat off the 42 million Americans with pre-diabetes.  He will have to get the addicts into treatment and the chronic illness people to increase medication compliance and stop using the emergency room.
    He is a neurosurgeon.  In the hospital hierarchy- neuros are on the the top of the dog pile fighting it out with the CT surgeons for supremacy.  I have not heard a single doctor complain about his lack of qualifications- just wonder why he would take such a huge paycut.
