Liver Transplant Denied in Arizona for people on State Healthcare.

Arizona’s Medicaid agency cut funding for some services and refused to pay for surgery. Prepped and ready to receive the liver transplant that was donated by a close friend, doctors told the man that they couldn’t proceed with the operation, and the liver was then given to another patient who also was in need of the organ.

I heard a lot more about this today and it's absolutely disgusting. Keith Olbermann had two families affected by this on his show tonight. The Republicans are completely ignorant to what actually does and does not harm the American people. Or worse case, they really do and are willing to kill us out of greed.
