Elections have consequences
If you are one of the 24 million Americans who may be at risk of losing health insurance due to today's events on Capitol Hill, elections have consequences.
If you voted for Donald Trump in the November election but also were unaware that the Affordable Care Act was actually Obamacare and you rely on that coverage, elections have consequences.
If you are a progressive who supported Bernie Sanders during the primaries then became so salty (rightfully so) that Hillary Clinton was gifted the nomination and thus decided to vote either third party (Gary Johnson), forth party (Jill Stein) or just stayed home, elections have consequences.
"Election have consequences" was famously quoted by former President Barack Obama in 2009.
He was not wrong by any means.
Yesterday, House Republicans passed the first piece of legislation towards repealing and replacing the both equally popular and controversial Affordable Care Act. Or what is known "affectionately" as Obamacare.
Many of us may be facing consequences of our actions from November.
Wherever you stand on Obamacare. Whether you are thrilled or terrified of yesterday's news. The only phrase I can utter right now is God Bless us all.
