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.

The healthcare death panel is alive and well in Arizona thanks to Gov. Jan Brewer and the republican legislators.

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.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
