Website Helps Send Your Ashes To A GOP Congress Member If You Lose Health Insurance

No comments
In case you lose your health insurance and die due to Republicans' repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act, you can choose to send your ashes to a GOP member of Congress.
The website mailmetothegop.com helps people get their papers in place in order to send their ashes to the GOP when they die. 
The site says: “Will you die because of AHCA? Let them know.
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.
They deserve to know it.”
The site was created by Zoey Jordan Salsbury, an American University junior who won an award last June from President Barack Obama for her and another student’s volunteer work with the nonprofit MEANS Database.
Salsbury tweeted the website’s link in May after the house voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. People were so interested in the site that it crashed, but was up shortly afterwards. By 3 A.M., there were hundreds of submissions, Salsbury told the Washington Post.
Although Salsbury won’t actually deliver a person’s ashes to Washington D.C., she does help people write wills so their remains can be mailed to a Republican congress member of their choice when they pass. 
The most popular congressman to send ashes to? House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., Salsbury told the Post. "People are not pleased with him.”
Salsbury, who was diagnosed with fibromyalgia this year and has depression and anxiety, said she plans to have her ashes mailed to congress if she loses her insurance and dies.
While Republicans struggle with the Senate healthcare bill that will replace the Affordable Care Act, Salsbury has been collecting responses from those who will be affected if Obamacare is replaced with the Republican bill.
“This proposed bill is awful for the people of the United States,” said one person. “Why would you introduce a bill that effectively treats women like their gender is a pre-existing medical condition, and prevents thousands of American families from affordable family plan options like regular pregnancy?”
Another person wrote: “Because I have cancer which is a pre-existing condition as per the new bill. You are murderers. Every one of you that voted to repeal ACA. I hope you too have to choose between death and going into debt one day soon.”

The Congressional Budget Office said this week the number of insured Americans will increase by 22 million under the new Republican health bill. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump pressed Republican senators on Friday to repeal Obamacare now and replace it later.
