Make No Mistake, This Actually ISN’T a Repeal and Replace YET – So Quit Celebrating You Evil F*cks

It is said that, upon hearing that the French peasants had no bread to eat, future queen Marie Antoinette replied, “Let them eat cake.” This anecdote captures the great disconnect between people and rulers that ultimately led to the head-choppy French Revolution. It has passed down to us over 250 years, because it is perfect shorthand for the arrogance of the rich and powerful. It could have stood as the greatest statement of political cluelessness of all time, but the Republican party decided to outdo Ms. Antoinette on Thursday. After House Republicans narrowly voted to repeal key protections that the Affordable Care Act provides for 24 million Americans, the Republican party, including Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, met to celebrate the passage of the bill.
