Bill (The Gambler) Bennett wondered "Where's the outrage?"

Right here -- I suggest it may be time to pick up the torches and pitchforks, the tar and feathers, and, as they did at the end of the Boris Karloff Frankenstein, head up the hill with outrage in our hearts, only, in this case, Capitol Hill.

Consider this brief portion of Digby's comments...

Hullabaloo: "By now most people who read liberal blogs are aware that George W. Bush signed a law in Texas that expressly gave hospitals the right to remove life support if the patient could not pay and there was no hope of revival, regardless of the patient's family's wishes. It is called the Texas Futile Care Law. Under this law, a baby was removed from life support against his mother's wishes in Texas just this week. A 68 year old man was given a temporary reprieve by the Texas courts just yesterday.

Those of us who read liberal blogs are also aware that Republicans have voted en masse to pull the plug (no pun intended) on medicaid funding that pays for the kind of care that someone like Terry Schiavo and many others who are not so severely brain damaged need all across this country.

Those of us who read liberal blogs also understand that that the tort reform that is being contemplated by the Republican congress would preclude malpractice claims like that which has paid for Terry Schiavo's care thus far. "
