Decisions, decisions: Save lives or cut taxes? Brewer chooses tax cuts - Tucson Progressive
Insurance companies have been vilified for allowing bureaucrats to make life-and-death decisions based upon efficiency and cost effectiveness.
Arizona’s Republican Governor Jan Brewer and her cronies in the Arizona Legislature have taken this draconian policy. Now Arizona politicians decide who dies, who survives, and who thrives. (Here’s a hint– don’t count on any poor people being in the “thrive” category.)
Not to be content to be regularly lampooned on Saturday Night Live, the Colbert Report, and the Daily Show, Brewer, her heartless “Brewercare” version of AHCCCS (the state’s Medicaid system), and her politically controlled Death Panels are regularly featured on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann and are going viral. (What a boon for the state’s tourism office!)
