He's been shrugging off these pesky little heart attacks since he was 37, I thought he was getting used to them.

I bet he'll be fine!:elephant:

Glad to hear it. I've always liked and respected Cheney, and regretted when he got in with GWB.

I hope he has a speedy recovery and a long happy life.

He probably got Pelosi's. She wasn't using it and it was taking up space in the attic.

Sorry... My mistake. She isn't using either, so I guess I got them mixed up.

I'm surprised there wasn't someone younger in line for that heart.

What's he know about the upcoming SCOTUS decision next week that we don't? I think he thought he'd better get it while he could. There are death panel applicants posting in this thread already.

If I'm not mistaken, "greatest need" is what prioritizes the list.

I don't think asking about how organ recipients are prioritized places someone on a death panel.

At what age do they stop considering patients for transplants? There are probably many factors to consider.

"........... In the United States, the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) determines priority for a heart transplant by grouping patients by the severity of their heart condition. This grouping lets those who need a transplant most be considered first. The groupings are as follows:

Status 1A – includes very ill patients who need constant inotropic medicines or mechanical assistance (left ventricular assist devices); these patients are expected to live less than one month without a transplant.



Status 1B – includes medically stable patients who need constant inotropic medicines or mechanical assistance (left ventricular assist devices); these patients are expected to live more than one month without a transplant.



Status 2 – All patients who do not meet the above standards.

http://www.texasheartinstitute.org/HIC/Topics/Proced/hearttx.cfm

He met all of these conditions. The flak you hear against him getting a heart are purely personal , trivial and unethical. These are the types that will need to be weeded out when obamacare's death panels are created.

I agree.

Can you imagine how political it could be for a government agency deciding who gets what care?

Cheney older, waited longer than average for heart transplant (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/25/heart-cheney-idUSL2E8EP5VZ20120325)

I've read alot of nonsense on other forums about how cheney is too old and someone more deserving should get it.....mostly dems saying this however this wish may come true if obamacare isnt wiped out, and it could be someone in your family that gets denied....

Exactly!

The politicians and bureaucrats will be making healthcare decisions based on what groups are likely to vote to keep them in power.

It’s already starting.

Socialist heart transplants would be to have the government claim a person's heart regardless of their wishes and give the heart to someone in order to get their vote.

Socialized medicine has worked so well every where I am sure it will be just as successful in America too right? Cheney would still have got a heart he just would have had to go to a different country and paid for it not that he didn’t pay here I am sure it cost plenty.
obama care will end up destroying the quality of health care and end up killing more than it helps.
