    the medical profession tries to make decisions on organ replacement on a set of rules, not emotion. By following a strict set of rules, it reducescorruption and favoritism. Maybe we should just have an Amarican Idol type of process, where the most popular or the most sympathetic get the transplants?

    And her DOCTORS say yep it would work. She should be put on a list and the age should not be a problem. but it is the Bureaucrats who are using a set of rules instead of what the doctor says about an individual case.
    And the IRS is going to be in charge of the purse? Not Doctors?
    Be afraid, be very afraid.

    Isn’t the left who says let the Patient and the Doctors decide. Oh wait that’s just abortion. Sorry.

    obamacare life panels.

    The real issue is this has nothing to do with obamacare. it has to do with complex, life and death rules and organ transplant lists and protocols.

    perhaps and it should be simplified and available organs be auctioned off to the highest bidder. after all that’s the only fair way to do it, right GOP’rs?

    Who really thinks Ms. Sebelius personally made the indivdual decision in this case? How stupid.

    Regardless of who is paying the bills, there will be someone tasked with deciding what will be covered and what will not.It could be a government bureaucrat. Right now, it’s an insurance company bureaucrat. Does this make it better?

    Putting adult lungs into a child can be problematic in ways that lay people may not consider. The lungs must be made smaller to fit. How will they deal with that? Once they are adult sized, cut down, and inserted into a child, will they grow a with the child, or will they stay the same size?

    Making health care policy decisions based on public opinion is like asking fourth-graders to design a space station. Typically, they’ll leave out something important.

    Remember Terry Schaivo. Remember they put a baboon heart into Baby Faye. Lots of hoopla. Lots of press conferences. Uh, but baboons live to be less than 20, typically. And they grow to 95 pounds. Who could have guessed that Baby Faye would die?

    You sir, are an uninformed idiot. The IRS nor any government agent will be making any medical decisions."
    Wow really? And I bet you believed Obama when he said you can keep your Doctor. Now Doctors are fleeing Obamacare in record numbers. Sounds like to me they already are making medical decisions for the public at large!

    wait wait a second you just said that Obamacare will not make medical decisions but a bureaucrat should make one now?
    And it is the doctors who have made the decision that this girl could handle an adult lung. and you are OK with her being rejected?

    “I make a lot of money. I pay a lot of taxes. I fully support the ACA. I am happy to subsidize the health care of those less fortunate than me. I went to college and grad school with government grants and loans, I went to an excellent public high school that prepared me for the rigorous studies of college and grad school. I work for the state. I am happy to subsidize the health care of those less fortunate than me because:
    “1. I am only giving back some of the many benefits that our great society has given me.
    “2. I believe all humans deserve good health care, even ‘able-bodied moochers’
    “3. I recognize that providing healthcare for all makes us a better society. Safer. More just. More economically viable. Selfishly, I want to live in that better society. That’s the society I want for my kids and grandkids.
    “4. Maybe, just maybe, my kids or grandkids will need some assistance from these types of programs long after I am gone and cannot help them. I am helping anonymous others now, and someday I hope society will help my friends and family if they need it.

    @wmconelly

    So what are you saying? the only way to do that is to give into Obamacare? Turn over a sizable portion of our economy to Obamacare? Is that what you are saying? You are saying that the only way to get these things is Obamacare? Because I want that to and well, the results are coming in and Obama lied to us about Obamcare and what you are talking about will not happen under Obamacare. Obamacare is starting to be a train wreck! and just because I know this, i saw it coming and i have been speaking out against it does not in any way mean i do not believe in the gist of what you are saying. it is not that i do not want your 1-4 it is the FACT that OBAMACARE will NOT deliver on THOSE PROMISES! SORRY NOPE not going to happen! I have spelled out since day 1 of why it is and has been FAILING.

    1. I am only giving back some of the many benefits that our great society has given me.
    Society at large has not given me one damn thing! yes my tax money and your tax money has set up a place where I can make something of myself. So what! I only owe the taxes in which i have have been paying through the sweat of my own head. I have the RIGHT to Pursue happiness. It is my job and my actions to hunt it down and i fail if it is not achieved. When i succeed it is MY success not societies. Society benefits from my success! Not the other way around.
