heart pump that was recently implanted in Dick Cheney:
1. The device and procedure were funded by Medicare to the tune of $150,000 to $200,000. Where are the protests from the anti-government tea baggers?
2. A man who outed a CIA spy, putting other agents in peril and diminishing the effectiveness of America's intelligence community, and whose actions in a secret energy task force abetted the events leading up to the BP oil catastrophe gets a heart pump. I wonder if a 65 year old criminal who is languishing in the Camden County jail for passing bad checks - a far less serious crime - would receive the same medical treatment.
