As ThinkProgress has reported, Gov.

So, by not funding transplants she sent two people to their deaths. Now that's what I call a real <u>DEATH PANEL</u>...... <u><span style="color: #993399">[ of ONE....Q ]</span></u>

Can't wait to hear what Palin has to say about this.

So why do you support making this nationwide and for everyone?

And back to this.

MEDICAID is a federally mandated program, and Arizona is currently being crippled by the amount of illegals they have to provide care for under the program.

So, you and the left demand that the problem be created and then blame those who tried to avoid the problem from happening.

What a piece of work.

This woman should be tarred and feathered and run out of the country! Amazing, as you say, after all of the RW BS rhetoric about Death Panels, the ONLY REAL DEATH PANEL, IS LED BY A REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR!

She is repulsive, to say the least. One of the reasons why health care costs are not sustainable, again, can be traced straight back to Reagan's Amnesty, which gave us millions of illegals, going to the emergency room, with no health coverage, getting the most expensive health care there is, and then leaving the bill to the rest of us.
