Dick Cheney's Heart Pump

A couple of observations on the 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.
