    The truth comes out. It's not the left that wants death panels, it's the right, because poor people are evidently more likely to die anyway...

    So a human life is apparently worth about $46,000?

    I understand that tough decisions need to be made and that budget cuts are a way of life at this point, but are savings of a relatively small $4.5million really worth the potential lives of nearly 100 people?

    Granted, not 100% of them would survive even with the transplants, but most likely all of them will die without them.

    When I look at the spending that apparently is important - resurfacing roads that hardly seem worn, putting in new street lights, etc. - the decision-making process is obviously flawed.

    I don't know that it's "unheard of," but I would definitely say it's unethical, and just plain wrong.
