    Any insurance is going to do that, private, or subsidized. I didn't answer it, because you aren't going to like my answer.

    I'm not a bad guy, nor am I a victim. I'm arguing more about their "right" to take money from others. I dont have a job or insurance at this time.

    Heh sorry, pardon my ignorance, whatahuh? Not sure who said that

    The reason a heart transplant costs so much is because it is a rare operation with a rare supply of hearts and thoracic surgeons are a rare breed.

    Sorry your appeal to emotion didn't work on me. With over seven billion people on this planet who are causing more harm than good, we can afford to let quite a few go.

    Hey, I have a great idea! Lets go murder some random people and take their hearts out and use them for transplants! With more hearts available, the cost of a new heart is bound to go down.

    What? it's either that or stem cells, and we all know that the use of stem cells is evil and uncouth!

    I'm guessing if you are hesitant to discuss it on a public forum, it would have little to any chance of being acceptable to the majority of voters.

    Oh look, the worthless partisan talking points have arrived in their usual lack-luster form.
