On Monday, the Trump administration revealed one of the most awaited plans (and promises) of the 2016 campaign. Throughout the time spent on the trail, President Trump promised voters that he would swiftly repeal Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) and replace it with his own health care plan. When it was announced that the Republicans in government were ready to reveal their own American Health Care Act, many people couldn't help but crack a few jokes. These Obamacare vs. GOP replacement tweets prove that not everyone is taking the news seriously, and you know what, that's OK, because these responses are pretty hilarious.
In a statement regarding the American Health Care Act, Paul Ryan said:
"The American Health Care Act is a plan to drive down costs, encourage competition, and give every American access to quality, affordable health insurance. It protects young adults, patients with pre-existing conditions, and provides a stable transition so that no one has the rug pulled out from under them."
That's all great and dandy, but what about the comedy? You can't have President Trump & Co. release such important news without some of the American people taking a moment to poke fun at the announcement before getting down to serious business. Don't believe me? Just check out some of these tweets about the reveal to see just how people are responding to the news.
The general consensus, or so it seems with these tweets, is that the GOP replacement is not as good as Obamacare. Look, the Affordable Care Act received a fair amount of its own criticism throughout its time in place. But, knowing some of the executive orders President Trump has enacted have gone over less than stellar with the people of the United States (and the government), it isn't really all that shocking that this announcement is already getting a ton of judgement.
The tl;dr of the GOP's announcement is that things are currently at status: Pinterest fail according to a corner of the internet. Will President Trump prove people wrong and come out with a sequel that's actually better than the original? Or will this be another disappointing Men In Black II situation, again?
