And anyone who hasn't yet caught up with the cases of Sun Hudson and Spiro Nikolouzos should go here. Hudson and Nikolouzos are patients in Texas (a six-month-old boy and a 67-year-old man, respectively) whose families have sought to keep them on life support, but the families' wishes have been thwarted because hospitals in that state have the legal right to overrule families. (Sun Hudson, the six-month-old, has since died.)

Let me be cold-blooded: If Democrats played the game like Republicans, a delegation of Dem politicians would fly down to Texas and literally try to make a federal case of these denials of care.
