Real life cancer researcher Terra Sigillata notes the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services is reportedly cutting back reimbursements for crucial lifesaving drugs that treat lymphoma. In short, this could ostensibly cause some people to die, people that could otherwise be saved.
And incidentally, Terra Sigillata is manned by two registered democrats who send every penny received from ScienceBlogs to a cancer patient support group. They are paid based on traffic: That means if you visit their blog here, you are putting money directly into the pocket of some very sick people in dire need, without it costing you one dime.
