Agree 100%

Some things need to be taken care of right away and ebelius should be thrown from office for not doing so..among other things she "has" done.

Good to see you posting again. Keep it up Tom!

No, they should've taken the lungs from the many CONservatives and faux Republicans out there that look for any reason to jump on the Obama administration.

She made the right call period. First there are rules and procedures in place to take out the human element and save time. These are thought out in advance to avoid debates and waste time. Also stops human bureaucrats from playing god. Then as a true conservative why would anyone want a government bureaucrat making a decision like this.

People as in plural died for this girl to get TWO sets of lungs, not one. And at least one of them was an adult set of lungs. At least one adult is still on the least waiting for a transplant.

Also why was the family so secretative about the second set when they cried publically for the first set. Strings werent' pulled or rules were bent or broke for the second set???
