Video: Senator Mazie Hirono on GOP health care vote
Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono addressed the Senate floor last night during the vote on “skinny repeal” in an emotional speech about her childhood in rural Japan, where her sister died of pneumonia, coming to America, and being diagnosed with stage IV kidney cancer.
Her speech is shorter than Senator John McCain’s but is no less impactful.
To my GOP colleagues, after I was diagnosed with cancer, you showed me your care. You showed me your compassion. So where is that tonight? pic.twitter.com/BfWMIDd0Vo
