#1 I've said Sebelius is a vile, shameless party machine who is horrible off the cuff. If a person wanted to really add to the credibility damage I would put her on TV every single day, and twice on Sunday.

#2 This looks line line jumping and special pleading.

Yep. Gonna be seeing a lot more of this as health care gets rationed. If you're not young and cute, better have a good answer when they ask "Who sent you?".

#6 Was not line jumping. A little background. The child was at the end of her tiny rope. The only hope per the doctors was an adult set of lungs that she had greater chance of recieving from the adult pool than lungs from another child which were far more scarce than the adult pool. But law forbid anyone under 12 access to the adult pool unless the head of the DHHS entered an exception. Her response was 'no, people live, people die'. The courts were the 19 year old's only alternative.

#7 correction, 10 year old's only alternative.

#8 Of course all that is true, Winky Sproing5899. But something similar -- except for youth -- could be said about everyone on the transplant list... and someone undoubtedly died who would have otherwise lived because this child was given preference.

This is a living example of the death panels Sarah Palin was mocked for. And it's only going to get worse as Obamacare rules ever more tightly restrict -- whether actively by regulation or passively as suppliers go Galt -- availability and access to doctors, medicines, equipment, and new inventions, al the things that previously differentiated health care in America from elsewhere in the world.
