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).

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.
