This website wants to help you mail your ashes to Republican congressmen

This website wants to help you mail your ashes to Republican congressmenNow that the American Health Care Act has cleared the House of Representatives, taking an estimated 24 million people a step closer to losing health insurance, a new website is stepping in to help. Namely, by ensuring that the ashes of those who could die as a result end up on Republican doorsteps. Zoey Jordan Salsbury, a college student at American University, debuted Mail Me to the GOP on Thursday after 217 Republicans voted to pass the AHCA on to the Senate. The site lets people "send" their "ashes" to the GOP congressperson of their choice via an online web form.  SEE ALSO: How congressmen embarrassed themselves when asked if they’d read the health care bill @nsilverberg I made a website for sick people to send their ashes to a GOP member of congress because of this tweet: t.co/AKac7UgroH — Zoey Jordan Salsbury (@zoeyjsalsbury) May 4, 2017 From Mail Me to the GOP's homepage: Salsbury told the
Washington Post that while she herself does not intend to send people's ashes to congressmen, she will contact an estate planner and help those who've signed up on her website make sure their wills reflect the desired intent for their remains.  Mail Me to the GOP comes amid uproar over the House's decision to vote on the bill without a Congressional Budget Score. A CBO estimate on an earlier version of the bill found that about 52 million people would be uninsured by 2026 under AHCA, compared to an estimated 28 million under the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.  Some GOP members even admitted they hadn't read the bill in its entirety before voting yes. Salsbury directs visitors to her website to contact their senators and donate to the 2018 opponents of those who voted for the bill. In a darker section of the website, she asks those who'll suffer most under the AHCA to share "Reasons Why We Will Die." The submissions are testimonials from people whose pre-existing conditions could leave them uninsured should the AHCA pass in its current form. "I have a rare form of leukemia, no cure or remission," reads one. "I can stay alive for a long time if I take daily oral chemo. But without insurance, I can’t afford my meds and I will die without my medications." With 24 million people potentially suffering from lost health insurance, we're looking at a lot of ashes.
