It will be interesting to see if anyone on the left offers any kind of wishes for a full recovery (I won't hold me breath.) Most likely, they'll spin this situation as an argument in favor of Obamacare.
They can’t spin it in favor of Obamacare because in reality if Obamacare were in effect right now Cheney would already be dead. They would never have given a man of his age a new heart. This is why in Obamacare they have “Death Panels” to prevent the elderly from being able to get the treatment they need to live longer
