The jury is still out on just how many people the American Health Care Act will kill, and it hasn’t even made it through the Senate yet. Sen. Chris Murphy reminded House Republicans that the deaths of thousands will haunt them forever, while the Daily Kos called the vote a death sentence for millions of Americans.
It’s not unusual for reporters to make note of a bunch of white guys at a Trump thing, but today’s victory lap in the White House Rose Garden was particularly upsetting due to them taking away health care from millions of people who aren’t white men.
So. Many. White. Men. Taking. Away. Women's. Healthcare. pic.twitter.com/Z9hmw2XfTw

ICYMI – old white men with more money than they'll ever need voted to sell your life and your family's lives and health for even more money.

@CBSNews Rich old white men patting themselves on the back for stripping millions of their healthcare, including their own constituents. Sickening.

Straight white men with taxpayer funded insurance just voted that my life doesn't matter as much as theirs. Because that's what they believe

@ManMadeMoon A group of exclusively rich white men applaud their efforts to pass something that will primarily hurt women, minorities, and poor people.

AHCA is emblematic of the white male mediocrity and patent hatred for women, POC, LGBT and the disabled that white male dominance represents

Really admire the diversity in the Republican Party. There are straight cis white men with white hair, and at least three with brown hair. pic.twitter.com/MgTaNixk3Q

Yeah, but when the nation’s enemies begin hurling giant space rocks at America from the moon, you know you’ll be expecting white men to do something about it.
Women, look at this photo. This is your place in the Republican party. Get your shit together. I'm talking to you, white women. https://t.co/J98vT6YyWE

Women make 80% of health care decisions in the US. This GOP celebration at the White House is virtually a sea of men.

It really is, but that doesn’t let white women off the hook, does it?
In any case…:
Men don't matter in this equation. Fuck the patriarchal white knight bullshit. White women did this.
