Will John McCain Save Obamacare—and Himself?

The New Yorker—July 26, 2017

In an article about healthcare reform, The New Yorker reporter Mark Singer wrote about his own personal experience with an autoimmune disorder. According to Singer, he was healthy throughout his life but quickly became ill and unable to walk. Singer recounted, "Within a couple of weeks, through the intervention of friends and colleagues, I had an appointment with a rheumatologist at Hospital for Special Surgery, in New York."

When meeting his rheumatologist, Singer was asked to talk his life and passions rather than his symptoms alone. Singer wrote, "I burst into tears. Then I spoke of my family (especially my four children), my friendships, my love of my work. I instinctively knew that I would come to regard this doctor as my personal hero.

According to the article, Singer said his condition varied in the past few years, but he is currently "heading out of the woods".
