Here’s Hoping None of You Need to Be Mailed 

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Yesterday, Republicans in the House passed a bill which would repeal most of the Affordable Care Act. It’s an incredibly cruel bill, one which will harms tens of millions of Americans, and lead to untold numbers of unnecessary deaths. Hopefully, it will founder in the Senate, while serving as albatross around the neck’s of every congressperson who voted for it. For now, however, college student Zoey Salsbury has created a dark website that cuts to the heart of the matter.

So, Salsbury set out to make GOP politicians face the consequences of their vote, launching mailmetothegop.com, a website that pledges to send the ashes of your cremated body to a member of Congress, should you die because of the Republican health plan.

This is theater, of course, but that’s the point. Theater can be very effective.
