“Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell showed us a draft of his top-secret new health care legislation…and wouldn’t you know it, the bill includes a big tax cut for rich people. They’re calling the plan ‘Better Care.’ As in, just imagine how much better this plan would be if the people who wrote it cared.”

“The American Health Care Act—an act which answers the question, what if a bus-stop ad for a personal injury lawyer was a health care policy?”

—John Oliver

—The Daily Show

“We don’t know too much about what will be in the final [Trumpcare] bill because all of the negotiations so far have taken place behind closed doors. They even put a sock on the doorknob so no one barges in while they’re screwing poor people. It’s just polite.”

—Seth Meyers
