GOP Asks Brain-Damaged Woman to Testify

Just as I stated yesterday this will not be over for sometime to come.

Just one question though, how can a brain damaged person testify?

The answer is they don't expect her to testify -- it's a stall tactic and as a Republican I am disgusted. At the same time you have to admire the irony -- when Congress wants to do something they surely can.

All Florida courts have ruled that evidence given supports their ruling which has been that the tube could be removed.

The US Supreme Court has also agreed with the Florida courts.

Breaking news right now the tube has been removed.

Edit to add AP update

Yet efforts are now underway in congress to have it re-inserted. This is according MSNBC.
