‘Obi Wan Kenobi’s premiums will skyrocket’: People react to AHCA passage on Star Wars Day
Despite it being Star Wars Day, many will remember this year’s May the 4th as the day when House Republicans passed their controversial new Affordable Care Act repeal bill.
Many on Twitter, however, managed to tie the two together in their own political commentaries on the popular “May the Fourth be with you” viral holiday.

For those of you who insist of putting Star Wars in my feed, Congress just assured that 59-year-old Obi Wan Kenobi's premiums will skyrocket

I’m not a Star Wars fan, but this deserves a proper Death Star to go with it. https://t.co/TTB1P233FV
