Just some Republicans celebrating a bill that declares rape a preexisting condition

Ain’t no party like a Republican party (Click for larger version)

So as you presumably have all heard by now, the Republicans were able to get their Obamacare repeal bill through the House. Which means we need to 1) make sure they don’t get an equivalent bill through the Senate 2) make sure that all the Republicans who voted for this bill lose their jobs as soon as possible.

I’ve been filling up my Twitter with reactions to this shit, so, hey, why not open up a thread for you to share your reactions as well?

Throw them all out. #RESIST! #PERSIST! #BePISSED!

And maybe, if you like this sort of thing, watch a video of Dr. Pimple Popper squeezing out a #CYST! (I dunno, I find these videos sort of relaxing.)

Too much “if” in those articles.

The bill allows those things to be preexisting conditions. As this thread says, if the insurance companies can deny coverage on those grounds, they will. We probably shouldn’t say that the bill actually declares rape a preexisting condition, to avoid accusations of lying, but saying it allows them to do so is perfectly true.

Dreemr, the coffin one or the photo?

Honestly, the photo was so spot-on, it was frightening.

D, that’s how I interpreted it, too.
And you BET they will.

@PeeVee, I saw the coffin one, too, the I was referring to the one with the same smug face Photoshopped onto every man at the big Republican “celebration” for squeaking a bill through the House with 4 votes. Wow, real winners.

And yeah, it is SCARY WEIRD.

@Banananana dakry: Fat, Short-Haired, and Deranged:
Here is an article about Stance Stance records a voicemail and leaves it in your Rep’s inbox.
Some tips for calling your Reps:
Write a script. My basic format: “Hello, my name is (Pagan Reader – Misandrist Spinster) and I am a constituent from (my address- I include the full Street address and city/state/zip.)(If you get a person, this is a good place to pause to see if they need more info or something repeated.) I am calling about (whatever issue I’m calling about). Thank you for your time and attention, please have a lovely day.”
Your first couple times, you might want to consider calling after the office has closed so that you can leave a voicemail instead of talking to a staffer. The local offices usually close around 4-5 p.m. local time. Washington DC offices usually close at 5:00 p.m. EST.
If the voicemail boxes are full, there are sites that will send free faxes for you. Emails might take a couple weeks to get to.
Hope this helps (and didn’t come across as condescending.)

My rep voted no. I thanked him.

NOW would be the perfect time for one of those massive marches on Washington. This change may very well kill one of my sons.

I didn’t believe Trump when he acted like he was all concerned for mentally disabled children, but I’m shocked at how fast this suddenly went through the House.

All ‘back-and-forth’ on the other thread aside, I am genuinely sorry to hear that. As ever, there’s not much I can do in the UK but offer support, but if there was something, please let me know.
