Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius rebuffed an appeal from Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., on behalf of a girl who needs a lung transplant but cant get one because of a federal regulation that prevents her from qualifying for a transplant.
I would suggest, sir, that, again, this is an incredibly agonizing situation where someone lives and someone dies, Sebelius replied. The medical evidence and the transplant doctors who are making the ruleand have had the rule in place since 2005 making a delineation between pediatric and adult lungs, because lungs are different than other organsthat its based on the survivability [chances].

Looks like Obama’s death panels have arrived.
Folks, this is just the beginning
She must have looked at their voter registration,
or the charities they donate to,
and determined that this girl would be “someone who dies”.
If the girl’s doctors think she’s a good candidate for transplant,then get out of the way Kathleen.
The witch doesn’t care.
You need to check you spelling - that should be “b****”.
I was thinking more along the lines of “Weapons-grade Douche Nozzle.”
If her family put’s up a fight, will the DOJ or IRS pay them a visit? We live in a dangerous new world.
Sibileus is living up to all our expectations and is just getting warmed up.
The bureaucrats are now in God’s stead deciding who lives and who dies. The American demographic voted for those currently in positions of authority and due to degeneracy will not object but like brute beasts accept their lot.
You are right!!! What’s one more young child life lost, when Sebelius sanctions millions of murderous abortions from early to late term without any remorse at all. Obama and Sebelius could care less about this child. These disgusting people, from Obama on down are heartless killers!!! America, you are standing by an America many of us would have never dreamt we would ever see. Hilter is briskly alive and well In Obama and his lock-stepping, child murderers. They have no souls, these Democrats!!! Why should they, their beloved Obama is truly Hitler & Satan combined!!! God is weeping today....and so am I!!! Wait......the Obama/Sebelius death panels will be here soon!!!! If you are old, sickand require extensive medical care.....the Obama team will kill you!!!
We certainly went from “no death panels” to “death panels someday” to “you’re going to die” in record time, didn’t we?
Oh, but no...there’s no death panels, are there...
WTF? Why does such a federal regulation exist?
Unfortunately there are many more people in need of organs then donors. There are current rules around who gets in the front of the line. One can argue against the rule as written. But does one want a situation where a Congressman gets to reshuffle the line? If this girl gets to jump in line then someone who does not have the political pull will not get the organ and will die.
The very young and the very old will be the first to be denied care under Obamacare. The Nazis had a term..”life without life” for those deemed too expensive for the state to care for and who then were euthanized. We can expect the same under Obamacare.
Democrats are part and parcel to murder on a daily basis. Nazis of the first order. I wish on them the same fate as the Nazis.
It is an honor to die for Dear Leader
