Let's put "Don't Get Sick" on the dollar bill because it's about to become the national motto.

Now, no one really thinks Obamacare's perfect, even the people benefitting from it the most. So when Trump and the GOP campaigned on making this thing better, promising better coverage and lower prices, people took them at their word. 

Why? Who knows. Anyone could've predicted what would happen: Higher prices for the sick, elderly, and poor; tax cuts for the rich. So you'll never believe it, but that's exactly what happened. 

Paul Ryan's wet dream is out, and, surprise, it's great for the rich and awful for everyone else. But don't take my word for it. John Oliver tore this thing a new one on Last Week Tonight, breaking down just how bad this will be for just about everyone except a couple millionaires. 

So enjoy a laugh at the health coverage we're all about to lose.

Why do politicians keep doing this?

Every few weeks another politician stands in front of a screen to make their case, and it just gets destroyed on the internet. As if Trumpcare didn't have enough bad press, now it's getting another meme-ing. One healthcare plan can only take so much meme-ing! 

He's asking for it. 

Trumpcare might be on meme life support, but it definitely can't afford the deductible.

Trumpcare isn't really going that well for the GOP. In addition to comparing health care and buying a cellphone, that reality-TV gameshow host asking everyone not to call it "Trumpcare." If that guy doesn't like it, I don't know what to say. 

Stephen Colbert broke it all down last night on The Late Show, and it all does kind of sound very Game of Thrones-y.

That Obamacare replacement really isn't going that well. In addition to making people pay more for less coverage and lying to the public for years, Republicans spent most of a decade complaining about something they never really had any intention of fixing. 

But at least there's this, one of the replacement plans is called the "World's Greatest Healthcare Plan of 2017," which they had to have stolen from a "World's Greatest Dad" mug or something. 



Now you're probably wondering, how is this real? What the hell is going on? But this is just one of the possible bills that the GOP might use and rename the American Health Care Act.

This is a very real thing that you can read more about here.

In case you haven't heard, last night, the GOP unveiled their long-awaited replacement plan for Obamacare. To no one's surprise, it's filled with policy that will not only leave million uninsured and penalized heavily for not having insurance, but also give lots nice tax credits for the rich! These guys are nothing if not predictable. 

For the most part, it seems a lot like a plan that was slapped together in a hurry (because it was), becoming something og shittier version of Obamacare, offering similar ideas but for more money and less coverage. Even some House Republicans are calling this thing "Obamacare 2.0."

One thing it did help, however, was the internet, which got 10 CCs of memes comparing the Affordable Care Act with its whack-ass knockoff, the GOP replace aka The American Health Care Reform Act.

Repealing Obamacare isn't just something that your lonely uncle is emailing you about anymore, it's actually steps away from happening, and it's going to be disastrous for millions of Americans. 

But why? Why is the government so determined to remove coverage from millions of people? Why is Paul Ryan's dream to privatize medicare when he could dream of being an astronaut or something? Why can't that guy think of a real dream worth having? 

These questions demand answers, and John Oliver has them. Watch him break down what Republicans are doing by repeatedly pointing to this graphic of your dad in a thong:

As Inauguration Day looms heavy on the horizon (this Friday), and Trump's Twitter game only seems to ramp up in its unpresidented ridiculousness, it's only right that we have someone like the Jimmy Kimmel take to the streets to interview the citizenry, and hold a microscope up over something remotely similar to a Bubonic Plague of Ignorance. Oh a quick by the way here: this madness happened before:



Yes, in case anyone out there is watching this video wondering to themselves what the hell the big deal is with these answers...it's this: they are the same damn thing. The Affordable Care Act, and Obamacare = The same. Could we at least have had one person answer correctly. Nah dawg, we gotta stir the pot of stress-ridden hysteria on a regular basis.
