    Douglas Gravagna who suffers from viral cardiomyopathy poses for a portrait in Phoenix

    Douglas Gravagna who suffers from viral cardiomyopathy poses for a portrait in Phoenix, Arizona March 5, 2011. Gravagna, 44, has a 6 percent function to his heart, which is kept beating by a pacemaker and a defibrilator. He applied for state Medicaid for a needed transplant, but got a denial letter last October saying that he did not meet the criteria for a transplant under a new state bill. 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 like Gravagna, two of whom have since died.

    Anti-Walmart protesters walk to a City Council hearing from City Hall in New York, February 3, 2011. Wal-Mart's lengthy struggle to open in New York City has hit fresh problems a controversial report that said America's biggest discounter does not just sell cheap, it makes neighborhoods poorer. The report concludes that Wal-Mart , the biggest U.S. private employer, kills jobs rather than creates them, drives down wages and is a tax burden because it does not give health and other benefits to many part-time employees, leaving a burden on Medicaid and other public programs.
