This is not a question of money, this is a question of priority. For example, the money the Governor is currently spending on history museums would be enough to care for the patients needing liver transplants. Last year, the Governor increased the budget for the Arizona Historical Society by over 50%. There is still fat in the Arizona budget. The governor is not properly assigning priorities.

I agree with you about the Governor not having the right priorities. Preservation of life and education should always come first. Her disregard for human life is not just condemning one person to death but many others who, like Francisco Felix, depend on the state medicaid (AHCCS) insurance for their medical needs and survival. In fact, liver transplants are not the only vital surgery that this health insurance modification has cut off. There is a long list of vital procedures and treatments for survival that the poor now do not have access to. One of them is lung transplant. I wonder how many people in AZ are aware of this. How many do actually care? Unfortunately, it seems to be human nature that we don't care about important issues until they touch us personally. Those passing this kind of legislation were voted into office by Arizona voters. What do their lack of humanity when passing laws and cutting the budget in vital public services say about those who voted them into office?
However, the plight of Francisco Felix and others like him cannot wait for political referendums and idle talk. I believe that the fact that this inhumanity has been exposed calls us all to take action and prevent this evil from taking any more lives. We must demand this state health "reform" to be overturned by the citizens of Arizona! Otherwise, if we just do nothing, we are no better than those who created and passed this "health care reform". No one has the right to play with human life this way. Life should not have a price tag.
