Nora McInerny, who now hosts the American Public Media podcast, “Terrible, Thanks For Asking” brings us back to an earlier time in the health care debate — when it was more disconnected from the political calculus than it is now. When people didn’t toast the misfortune of the sick.
Nora, you may recall, lost her husband, Aaron Purmort, in November 2014 after a battle with a well-chronicled brain tumor.
So she knows a little something about what it’s like to be young and healthy and have one’s whole life ahead, only to find out that it’s a mirage.
Her Twitter thread today is a good dose of the reality that exists outside the Beltway.
