It’s reassuring to former Vice President Dick Cheney’s family and close associates, I’m sure, to know he is recovering so well from transplant surgery. One can’t help wondering, however, if he paid for this surgery himself or if he used his federally funded, full-coverage insurance.

It seems fitting that the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments about aspects of Obama’s health care plan, which provides insurance to millions of American who otherwise would not have been able to afford even basic coverage.
