    Just like cigarettes, the GOP continues to deny how harmful they are to your health even though there is decades of evidence to prove they are.

    yah, but is it not Obamacare “no death panels” who are denying a little girl her lung transplant? http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57587616/kathleen-sebelius-wont-intervene-in-girls-lung-transplant-case/
    I thought that government was not to get between you and your doctor? Oh well just another lie.

    @Harleyquinn

    The U.S. Congress established the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) when it enacted the National Organ Transplant Act (NOTA) of 1984. The act called for a unified transplant network to be operated by a private, non-profit organization under federal contract. ..so, the policies of this “Private sector” Non-Profit contractor, chartered under Reagan…nearly 30 years ago…is the “Death Panel” of Obamacare ??? Another Harley Fantasy.

    You do not see the parallel do you? Organs are at a premium. So regulations are drawn. The parents have to deal with the feds in order to plead their case the little girl should get the same treatment as a 12 year old. Her DOCTORS say it should be, but the regulations have to be followed and enforced by a bureaucrat.
    Now Obamacare is taking over almost ALL of Health care. Guess what shortages are already happening as doctors flee! Obama LIED to us and cooked the books on almost all the numbers. So now in a few short years you are going to have bureaucrats making the decisions of who lives and who dies by how much money they are going to spend on you. Death panels in Obamacare, just like the little girl who needs a lung a bureaucrat is going to decide based on more factors than just what her doctors says.

    The only morons here are the ones who don’t or won’t understand what today’s cartoon means.

    I don’t see any “health care” corporation intervening either. Why is that? Costs too much for them?

    “Death panels in Obamacare, just like the little girl who needs a lung a bureaucrat is going to decide based on more factors than just what her doctors says.”

    Hate to tell you this, but insurance companies have been doing the same thing for decades. Regardless of who provides the money, there will be someone who is in charge of deciding how much is too much.

    There are other considerations. Remember the story of Baby Faye? Doctors gave her a baboon’s heart. Lots of press conferences, lots of face time. Pioneers in medicine. Forget the fact that baboons don’t live nearly as long as humans, nor do they get above 90 pounds. Surprise: Baby Faye died. Sometimes the doctors are not as altruistic as they seem.

    Lungs are not my specialty, but there may be certain health considerations regarding the use of adult lungs in a child. They have to be made smaller, for one thing. How do you do that without damaging them? Can you be sure they will grow with the child? They were once adult-sized; are they finished growing?

    I have a friend with endstage liver disease. He can’t get on a transplant list because he can’t breathe easily because his lungs keep filling with fluid. If they provide a transplant for him, he won’t make it through recovery. Cruel? Certainly. Practical? You bet. He understands, preferring not to go through a lot of effort to get to the same place.

    There’s a lot we won’t know about this situation, but basing health care decisions on public opinion is not the way to handle things. Remember Terry Schaivo.

    Health care is prioritized, usually for a reason. The best we can do is ensure that reason is honorable.
