Obama's HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to Dying 10 Year-Old Girl: “Someone Lives, Someone Dies” (Video)


HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius rebuffed a family today seeking permission for lung transplant for their dying 10 year-old girl. Sebelius responded, “Someone lives, someone dies.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius rebuffed an appeal from Rep. Lou Barletta on behalf of a girl who needs a lung transplant but can’t get one because of a federal regulation that prevents her from qualifying for a transplant.

“Please, suspend the rules until we look at this policy,” Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican, asked Sebelius during a House hearing Tuesday on behalf of Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old girl who needs a lung transplant. She can’t qualify for an adult lung transplant until the age of 12, according to federal regulations, but Sebelius has the authority to waive that rule on her behalf. The pediatric lungs for which she currently qualifies aren’t available.

“I would suggest, sir, that, again, this is an incredibly agonizing situation where someone lives and someone dies,” Sebelius replied. “The medical evidence and the transplant doctors who are making the rule — and have had the rule in place since 2005 making a delineation between pediatric and adult lungs, because lungs are different that other organs — that it’s based on the survivability [chances].”

The same to you Kathleen Sebelius! What a horrible person she is.

Liberals claim to care for people. But this "someone lives, someone dies" statement and Hillary's "what difference does it make" statement about the four dead Americans in Benghazi show that liberals only care about people for their votes and taxes.
