Heard: Health Care = Sadness

An intern had been with the office for a few weeks, and the Legislative Director wanted to give her a substantial assignment to work on:

LD: What issues are you interested in?

Intern: [thinks for a moment] Yes.

LD: Um, no, I mean, what legislative issues do you find interesting? Do you like health care?

Intern: Yes.... I mean.... No. Because health care deals with sick people, and sick people make me sad.
