Arizona cuts financing for transplant patients

2 posts / 0 new

Yes, human life in America really does come with a price tag. If you are on state funded medicaid, you will be denied a life saving transplant operation because you cannot afford to pay for it on your own.

Oh those lovely Republican politicians. Death panels anyone??

Keith Olbermann has been a great champion on this issue, focusing a lot on the people actually being affected by what's in essense, actual "death panels". Also Governor Jan Brewer was confronted by a journalist concerning this, a British one if I recall.

At least as a Republican she's not limiting her contempt for humanity to just one issue (the other being the racist Arizona law).

The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
