ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I watched former Vice President Dick Cheney’s recent interview on NBC’s “Today” show, in which Mr. Cheney talked about his new book, “Heart.” It is a technological miracle that Mr. Cheney’s health returned after his heart-transplant surgery at the age of 71. What the interview failed to reveal is the fact that under the rules of Obamacare, neither he nor anyone else can legally receive a heart transplant at the age of 71. Had Obamacare been in effect at the time of his surgery, Mr. Cheney would now likely be in the cemetery, not plugging his new book on television. It’s just lucky that he got his transplant before Obamacare took effect.
