Debra Pennington (R) walks with people protesting against state Medicaid transplant budget cuts as she holds a picture of her husband Michael Allen Pennington, who needs a liver transplant in Phoenix, Arizona March 5, 2011.The measure enacted by Arizona Republican Governor Jan Brewer seeks to trim Medicaid spending in the desert state, which projects a 2011 budget deficit of $763.6 million and a full-year 2012 budget deficit of $1.15 billion, and has denied potentially lifesaving transplants to nearly 100 people. Two people have since died. REUTERS/Joshua Lott (UNITED STATES - Tags: HEALTH POLITICS BUSINESS)
