After years of saying they wanted to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, Congressional Republicans have released some of the details of two bills which would replace parts of the ACA.
How much does the new plan cost? We have no idea because Republicans refuse to submit their bill to the Congressional Budget Office for scoring. But millions of Americans will lose their health insurance and, thanks to massive cuts in Medicaid, million of low-income Americans will soon have no healthcare at all.
It didn’t take Twitter long to get ahold of what is being dubbed Trumpcare and make some comparisons to Obamacare that are both frightening and hilarious. Take a look:

Well, #Trumpcare looks awful, but like so many ventures with the word "Trump" in it, it's bound to go bankrupt anyway.

The GOP should just start charging people $20 to yell at the Republican "leader" of their choice. #TrumpCare would be funded instantly.

Pros: It's not called "ObamaCare"
Cons: It's much worse. Much more expensive, with less coverage.
Trump Voters: "We're in!"
