oh come on.

Heath Care Repeal vote passes house...

It's terribly ironic that this happened the day I was being interviewed about healthcare. I grew up with the idea that my culture inherently meant well and had some sort of moral compass. I am increasingly disillusioned. We are all so detached.

ok, I'm convinced that sharing my story will help somehow. I'll do it.

They can't actually kill it - they are just sabre rattling. Good I say - they show themselves for who they are.

Ugg, idiots. Maybe we can somehow form a "young people with cancer who need health care reform" group and go petition in DC or something.

As a YA with lymphoma, this makes me so incredibly frustrated and angry. I actually wrote a letter to John Boehner detailing how reapeal would be devastating for YAs with cancer. 3 weeks later, I haven't received so much as a form response Xeroxed by a high school page. Rather telling.
