Ill second that, why TK posts such utter crap is beyond me. What does bother me about this case is the doctors prognosis - a 65 percent chance of surviving six months? Thats like putting the kid on death row for another half a year. Is that fair on her or was removing the life support fair?

SWMBO, who works in the health care sandbox, informs me that most likely, the precedent set would open the medical facility involved to a financially ruinous run of similar cases. If a hospital is not set up to accept pro bono patients, they will soon go under.

Maybe "House" is just a TV show, after all.

Just another POV.

Alrity, straight from a funeral to a campaign..
Good going Mr Sarkisyan.
One of the sharpest exchanges of the day came when Edwards and the Clinton campaign traded words over Edwards' reference to last month's death of a 17-year-old girl, Nataline Sarkisyan of California, in making his case for challenging the health insurance industry.

Edwards, speaking to reporters in Keene, said Clinton and her advisers "have no conscience" after a Clinton aide suggested Edwards was using medical victims "as talking points" in his presidential bid. Edwards campaigned with Sarkisyan family members Sunday.

"One of the reasons that Nataline may well have died is because there isn't a patient's bill of rights," Clinton said in the debate.

You're right.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
