As Dick Cheney recovers from heart transplant surgery, questions are being raised about whether the former vice president is too old for a new heart.
Cheney, 71, who received the new heart Saturday at a hospital in Falls Church, Va., has been on the cardiac transplant list for more than 20 months.
Some medical centers will not perform a heart transplant on patient over 65, but other major centers will perform transplants on patients who are as old as 72.

They'll just waste them.
My husband and I were talking about this earlier. Can you just imagine what that cretin Bill Maher will have to say? Not to mention all of the other late night hosts. Their venom will be at an all time high.
God bless Dick Cheney and I hope he has a quick and uneventful recovery. He’s the best!
There were some freepers who also said he was to old to get a new heart. My wish for him is a speedy recovery and may he live a long life with his new heart
If there was a procedure for a brain transplant liberals, I’d be for it at any age.
Here we go with the windup to full-blown Obamacare ..... who makes life/death decisions like this? It should be between the patient & doctor. Cheney is not ready to give up on life yet & his doc thinks he is an acceptable risk for a heart transplant. Nobody else’s business .... until Obamacare kicks in. Then, Cheney would not only be ‘too old’, he’d be ‘too conservative’.
Garbage. The hospitals are very carefully vetted by the national donor program. There are numerous criteria followed, not just age, if the donor program approved him for a transplant, then it was legitimate.
You should have seen the tweets Monica Crawley was retweeting last night..absolutely disgusting comments from libtards who were hoping Cheney had died..yeah I bet the left is upset someone Cheney’s age got a heart transplant, after all, death panels ARE in Obamacare
Just estimate where age 71 falls on the x axis, and slide your finger up to the "odds of receiving a medical intervention" point on this Complete Lives Model curve, and you'll get a clue....hmm, he's sure one lucky fellow! Looks like it was more likely that he'd qualify for an "after birth abortion!"
Stop the DNC war on the elderly.
There is only one problem with this. You can only replace a pea-sized bird brain with another one
So true....To show this Watch the late shows Monday night...I bet they will all be making jokes about Cheney.
He spent some two years on a waiting list and got no preferential treatment.
Well, just because it’s Dick Cheney, the libs would freak out even if he was still Obama’s age.
*****may he live a long life with his new heart****
That is why they are so incensed.
Oh the indignation and pompous sputterings of the left are to be expected, but you can be the rent that if it had been the Buffoon from Georgia Jimmy Carter who had received a heart transplant, they would be singing the praises of everyone from the selection process, to the surgeons, to the hospital, to the nursing team, all the way down to the janitorial staff for ‘saving’ Carter’s life.
If it was a lib supreme court judge and a republican were POTUS you bet they would support a transplant!
Sarah proven right. Again.
There shall be death panels.
