    im sure you've heard the story . This baby in England has some terrible disease . He's blinded and deaf and only kept alive by a ventilator. In England the doctors think they should pull the plug . The parents want him
    To get some experimental treatment in the USA .

    The weird part. Two republicans are floating a bill to make the kid and his parents legal residents of the us so they can come over !

    Since when do cons care about medical coverage ? Especially for immigrants !

    The bigger issue is that you're ignoring the very "death panels" you were warned about.

    Leftists just view it as a late stage abortion and want to sell the parts - sad really.

    Are they wrong? It's an aweful situation. But this poor kid is only alive because of a ventilator. The poor parents are blinded wh grief .

    I hate to be cold, but how many resources are being used for this baby that doesn't have a chance ?

    If they have the money, which they do, who cares?
    And who in the holy fuck does European courts think they are? I would tell them to shove it up their statist asses.

    Its not a death panel as the GOP lets on, this baby is has brain damage and the med with they were going to give him in the UK does not cross the blood brain barrier. He has had the best docs money could buy.

    The only way to get a Republican to do anything is to convince them it's worth the political points. That's why they won't vote for an ACA repeal a 62nd time, because at the moment putting party before country would hurt them politically. Kids are sick and starving all over this country and they could care less; but tell them they can score some political points with a stunt and they'll jump at the chance.

    They do not have enough money for around the clock care for the life of the child.
