Republican Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada kicked a stage 4 cancer victim, Laura Packard, out of a town hall because she questioned him about the future of the Affordable Care Act.
Packard, who has stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma, tweeted that Heller’s “goons” told her not to speak before the start of the town hall:
.@DeanHeller @SenDeanHeller‘s goons threatened me before the event even started. (Srsly, wut?) Then he read my question from the stage, so I stood up to add to it. This is what happened next. https://t.co/a9f9TPvccO

Packard tweeted about her condition in May:
I have stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. 1st chemo today. Obamacare is literally keeping me alive & can get me cured. If it survives. #SavetheACA
