“How many people have to die before you are prepared to reverse your decision on the transplant operations?” seemed like the obvious question.
She said she thought that was unfair and started to explain how dire the state’s financial situation is. If people are so worried about the transplant patients then they should ask the federal government in Washington to send us more money, she said. But she would not explain to me, or to any Democrats in the state capitol, what she has done with the nearly $200 million she was already given in ‘stimulus funds’ to spend on anything she liked.
While suggesting that Arizonans should request more federal funding, Brewer openly vilifies a law — the Affordable Care Act — that provides exactly that. The health care law’s Medicaid expansion will foot 100 percent of the bill for states to expand until 2016 and 90 percent after 2020. However, to receive this funding, states have to maintain current eligibility levels in Medicaid and CHIP, something Brewer does not wish to maintain. And despite being well-aware of Arizona’s need for the health care law’s financial support, Brewer remains an outspoken champion of its full-scale repeal. In other words, Brewer is telling transplant advocates to ask for a helping hand she fully intends to bite.

Jan Brewer is so shady. They need to get rid of her. She needs to comply with the rules so that her state gets the funds that are allocated to each state. She has people begging her to change this. Actual people will die unless this happens. Don't tell me about a money tree running dry. Let's collect more money then. I hope the same people that agree with what she is doing, never have to face this situation, or none of their loved ones have to face it. We will just have to tell you sorry the money tree ran out, too bad for you.
