The economy continues to struggle, and the unemployment rate remains around 8.3 percent. It seems like the Obama administration would welcome new and inventive ways to put extra cash in Americans' pockets. Instead, the Department of Justice (DOJ) wants the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to backtrack on a revenue stream that it approved in December.
Last year, the Ninth Circuit ruled that people can legally sell blood stem cells, a critical component of bone marrow. The Obama administration, concerned that compensation could influence donation decisions, asked the court to reconsider its position, reports the Los Angeles Times.
