Republicans' health-care bill would be comical if it weren't so dangerous

In a Washington used to the accidentally comic stylings of congressmen like Louie Gohmert and Ted Yoho, itís still surprising when a real comedian like Jimmy Kimmel knows more about policy than they do.

But Kimmelís moving monologue this week about his newborn sonís brush with death made us suspect he did.

And House Republicansí performance on the American Health Care Act proved it.

The bill that passed the House Thursday in a party-line 217-213 vote should, in all seriousness, be rechristened the Drunk Driversí Health Care Act. The way Republicans passed it is just that reckless.

1. I am laughing all the way to my grave (which will be a short

trip since I only have a few years to Iive and all of it will be filled with excruciating pain). Seriously, now that the ACA is gone I can't afford the surgeries or meds needed to reduce my pain until I die. Therefore I am going to be like the 50% of the patients with my diagnosis and kill myself to end my suffering. My family and friends are on board and will follow my instructions to video record my death. They will post it after I die and I hope it goes viral and every single congressman suffers pain as bad as mine until he dies an d even if he is reincarnated! I called all 100 senators twice and 100 congressmen and told their staffers this plan and my situation (sobbing the entire conversation). THEY ARE INHUMANE!

2. hang in there BigmanPigman, this is not over

the Senate indicates they won't even vote on this piece of garbage, that they'll come up with their own version - since the Senate is also in repuke hands, they'll try to fuck America too

but these cowards won't let anything go into effect before the next elections

fuck them all

hang in there BP, we are with you
