The decision by Lance Armstrong's cancer charity, LIVESTRONG, to back the Senate health care overhaul bill prompted a flurry of comments on the charity's Web site along the lines of, "I support Livestrong in its work to defeat cancer. I do NOT, however, agree with their support of this healthcare travesty. As much as I would like to continue to financially support Livestrong, the idea of my donations going to support horrendous legisation like this causes me to seek out a different outlet for my cancer donations." It's an interesting little comment thread to read, because it appears to be not politicians or think tank "experts" or professional opinionators but just regular people voicing their concerns about what's in the Senate bill. The charity does its best, too, to explain its reasoning in backing the bill.
