Following the House of Representatives vote on the new American Health Care Act (AHCA) — better known as “Trumpcare” — Americans are terrified that the GOP is leaving them for dead.
The plan is slated to leave millions of people without coverage, and there’s a large chance that not having insurance will keep those people from going to the doctor because they can't afford to. This could mean the difference between life and death.
“Millions of Americans rely on protections and coverage from the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. The Republicans new bill will gut these protections and many will die,” the morbid website reads. “They deserve to know it. Fill out our form and we’ll help you get papers in order to send your ashes to a GOP member of Congress if you pass.”
People who sign up have the option to write a customized message explaining how and why they died and the role Trumpcare played in their passing. However, there are also pre-written notes which include, “My combat tour in Iraq resulted in enough disability to make me uninsurable, but not enough to get all my healthcare through the VA. You killed me, you prick.”
Yes folks, this is real. It’s so real, in fact, that on Thursday, the site garnered so much traffic that it crashed after its founder, Zoey Jordan Salsbury, tweeted an invitation.
Alas, all hope is not lost just yet as the AHCA must still face the Senate where it is expected to be dead on arrival — or so we hope.
If it does pass, at least with this new site we know that even in death we can keep the resistance going.
