A new website will ship your ashes to the GOP Rep. of your choice if Trumpcare kills you

Published

A new website will send your cremated remains to Republicans in Congress if the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) — also known as “Trumpcare” — kills you by discontinuing your coverage or denying you access to medications, surgery or other treatments.

Mediaite.com’s Linsey Ellefson said on Friday that MailMeToTheGOP.com will mail your ashes to a Republican in Congress if you die as a result of Trumpcare.

“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,” says MailMe’s website. “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.”

Users of the website have the option of writing a custom message about how and why they died as a result of Trumpcare, but there are also pre-written messages like, “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” and “Because you took away my f*cking insurance.”

Mediaite reported that the website received so many visitors on Thursday that it crashed after founder Zoey Jordan Salsbury posted an invitation on Twitter.

Republicans in the House of Representatives passed the AHCA on Thursday, a move that has been widely condemned by Democrats and some Republicans. The bill, if it becomes law, will strip insurance coverage for an estimated 24 million people or more. Moderate and hardline conservative Republicans signed on to the bill under pressure from the Trump White House. Most members held their noses and voted for the bill confident that the U.S. Senate will substantially alter or kill the bill altogether.

Trump defenders argued his latest tweets weren’t really racist — but he just completely undercut their arguments

Donald Trump in coal helmet thumbs up

If you try to defend President Donald Trump, you will always end up having the rug pulled out from underneath you. It's a law of nature.

And yet, so many of the president's allies have failed to learn this simple lesson. So when Trump launched a new attack at progressive Democratic lawmakers that was one of his most obviously racist smears, inevitably, some of his defenders tried to deny the obvious truth.

His screed attacked a group of women who have come to define the left wing of the Democratic caucus, which includes Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Rashida Talib (MI), and Ayanna Pressley (MA). Though only Omar is an immigrant (she was a refugee from Somalia as a child), Trump seemed to assume all four women of color weren't born in the United States, and most egregiously, he suggested they should "go back" to other countries:

Trump is facing massive criticism for his attacks on young women of color in Congress

US President Donald Trump came under fire from Democrats and even some members of his own Republican Party on Monday after launching an extraordinary xenophobic attack on four progressive Democratic congresswomen.

"All they do is complain," Trump told reporters at a White House event featuring products "Made in America."

"These are people that hate our country," he said of the four lawmakers. "If you're not happy here, you can leave."

Trump also accused the four first-term congresswomen -- who are of Hispanic, Arab, Somali and African American origin -- of having "love" for US "enemies like Al-Qaeda."
