Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    The Supreme Court will rule the mandate is unconstitutional and basically require Obama/congress to start over. There is a lot that can be done to hold down cost, address issues like pre-existing conditions and put the tax benefit of premiums on an equal footing, withoout this bad bill.

    " "In general, once the patient is over 65 or 70 they become excluded from heart transplant," Mariell L. Jessup said.

    There are lots of reasons for that. One is that older patients are less likely to survive the operation, and more likely to die soon after even if they do.

    "More of these patients are more likely to die within the first 30 days than patients who are younger," says transplant surgeon Scott C. Silvestry of Washington University in St. Louis. "

    Sounds like Cheney's heart transplant is more of a medical best-practice issue than a concern over government in health care.

    I agree Joe, the article I read mentioned his history of 5 heart attacks and that he already has a partial mechanical heart. This continued "Death Panel" scare tactic is just too laffable to be taken seriously.
    And besides, insurance companies (yours and mine) make these decisions every day. Who gets on the wait list for transplant, and who doesn't. The differences can be very small.
    And then there are patients removed from the lists because their health has deteriorated beyond some arbitrary point.
