McCrory amazingly oblivious to mounting criticism of HHS

It was another tough weekend for Governor Pat McCrory’s Department of Health and Human Services with papers from Hendersonville to Fayetteville blasting the performance of HHS and embattled Secretary Aldona Wos.

A Hendersonville Times-News editorial says  “shameless cronyism” is crippling the department, while the Asheville Citizen-Times calls HHS McCrory’s “dumping ground” for political allies and campaign workers.

The Fayeteville Observer documents the problems too in a Sunday editorial and Rose Hoban with N.C. Health News explains in an op-ed in the News & Observer how the department is stonewalling requests from reporters for public information.

And if all that’s not enough, Wake Med CEO Bill Atkinson tells the Triangle Business Journal that Wos and her top aides aren’t talking to him, despite the fact that the department owes his hospital almost $2.5 million since June.  The News & Observer also reported on the problems that HHS is causing for Wake Med.

And Governor McCrory? He’s still saying that he has the “best cabinet in America,” including Wos.

There’s out of touch, then there is simply being detached from reality—which seems to describe McCrory when it comes to his scandal-plagued Department of Health and Human Services.
