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).

Our kids are counting on us to reverse austerity.

According to UNICEF, even in the world's richest countires, children remain “the most enduring victims” of the recession. In the last six years, 2.6 million more kids have fallen below the poverty line, and more than half of them live right here in the United States.
