New DHHS early child care director on Obamacare

Obamacare:  Freedom or Enslavement?  That’s the question asked a few months ago by Dianna Lightfoot who was appointed NC Dept. of Health and Human Services director of early education programs (like Smart Start) yesterday.  Just note that Obamacare has already extended important health protections to hundreds of thousands of children in NC.  See Sarah Ovaska’s post  for more on Lightfoot’s appointment. [1.30pm update:  Sarah Ovaska reports that Lightfoot has decided to resign.]
