Arizona Democrats call on the Governor to restore transplant funding

David Schapira, Senate Democratic leader-elect, Chad Campbell, House Democratic leader-elect, transplant patients, and health care providers called on the Republicans in the legislature and the Governor's office to correct their "mistake"* of cutting AHCCCS funding for transplants.

* = They call it a mistake, but I think they are being overly charitable toward the Republicans.  I think it was a decision made after a careful calculation, one where the Rs determined that they were less bothered by dead poor people than by corporations paying a marginally higher amount of taxes.
