how is it that Iran got it right when we didn't?

Drew Carey addresses the kidney transplant waiting list in the US. interesting soundbite: "the government could pay $90k-100k per kidney and still save money."

  1. The Iranian government also pays for sex change operations, incidentally. And, their medical care conditions (along with literacy rates) have signficiantly improved since their anti-US revolution. We may not like their politics, but that doesn't mean they're all insane crazies.

  2. Wow! I'm all for paying people for their organs. You can pay someone to have a baby for you. You can pay someone for their eggs. Why not kidneys?!
