WASHINGTON – Rep. John Murtha has been hospitalized in intensive care stemming from complications related to gallbladder surgery.

Spokesman Matt Mazonkey says the 77-year-old Pennsylvania congressman underwent scheduled surgery last week and is currently at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington.

Murtha was also hospitalized in December with gallbladder problems.

The 19-term Democrat was the first Vietnam veteran to serve in Congress. He leads the powerful House Appropriations subcommittee on defense spending.

Time for him to retire?

Any guess who would take his place if he dies or can’t serve?
Appointment by Gov. or special election?

Give him the Health Care he voted for. He should not have been given a gall bladder operation because it is too costly and he is too old. Now there will be follow up care which will cost even more. Murtha is only worth 1/14th of a teenager anyway. - Obamacare

I think that Congressman Murtha has given too much of himself in the service of his country. He should retire immediately to conserve his health for himself and his family.

How's that?

You are a better person than I. God can see into my heart and knows any prayer I offer up is perfunctory. Someone who has done so much evil to the USA needs to face justice, sooner or later.

Unless I’m mistaken, Murtha served part of a term commencing in the spring of in 1974 (he was first elected in a special-election upset when the GOP incumbent died), so this is his 19th term and he’s running for his 20th.

Remember folks. We are better than the other side. We may not like his politics, but he does have family. We need to respect that they are suffering right now wondering what will happen to their father/husband. Let us stay on the high ground. That being said, I still hope he loses his reelection bid.

If they operate, I wonder how many CO2 credits he bought for the gas to inflate his abdomen so they can perform surgery!

I have had some personal enemies that just bothered me so much, that I actually sat down and prayed for them. Hard.

Over a couple of weeks my hatred thawed. I was able to reach out to them and make amends. We are not friends, but I sleep better at night.

Your mileage may vary. No judgement on my part....just my experience.

Murtha looks at the Reaper and shouts, “Don’t you know who *I* am!!?”.

You might be able to bully and extort your way through life, but no one can bully or extort death.

Vermont, I agree that you’re a better person than I.

19 terms is too damn long. Murtha in that pink boa, his own private airport, the shady deal upon deal upon deal. Most importantly, what Murtha tried to do and did to those Marines with his power and influence—

SHAME ON HIM. SHAME. How dare he.

He is likely where he can control the leakage of the facts...like a possible drinking problem and pancreatitus.....

Just guessing... With the pressure of investigations and all...

dont worry about Murtha. He receive the absolute best care, provided by a government program.

Of course, that government health care program awarded to Congress by the Congress is better by several degrees of magnitude than the healthcare program he wants to foist on us plebes.

Oh, I dont like the guy.

I just don’t wish him ill, or death. God will give him what he has earned and deserved.

I pray for his redemption. I pray for my enemies, so that they may find peace with God. If they find this peace, they will see that their path is wrong and they will make changes to the way they behave, and the way they understand how remarkably small they are in the grand scheme of things.

I can't imagine that anyone here wishes any ill will toward Murtha. Everyone wishes him a long, happy life in the private sector.

Get well soon, Congressman. And go home.
