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.

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path?

Democrats must embrace a pro-government platform, not run away from it.

Those were the sentiments of Senator Chuck Schumer today, in a speech given at the National Press Club. Talking about the reasons for Democrats’ losses on Election Day, Schumer said that those losses were proof that the American people and middle-class want a government that will work more effectively for them.
