House Republicans revealed their bill to replace Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, on Monday night.
The "American Health Care Act" removes the individual and employer mandates laid out in the ACA and provides healthcare subsidies based on age instead of income. The bill also includes language that defunds Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers for a year.
Some people aren't too happy about many of the proposed changes to Obamacare, and they expressed their frustration through memes.

These babies though.
Then there was this meme.
The infamous Jesus Fresco restoration meme returned from the dead.
And knockoff cereals made their way into the mix.
Ratatouille an imitator.
Lesser known soda doctors.
A Pikachu nightmare from a Funny or Die writer.

Basically every unlicensed intellectual property was featured at some point.
Seinfeld's poor-man's doppelgängers made an appearance.
Cash grab sequels were compared.
As were made-for-TV franchise projects.
And reboots that failed to live up to classics.
It was only a matter of time before someone brought up "Mac and Me."
And so on and so forth. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) created some social media buzz of his own early Tuesday when he referenced potential health care cost increases on CNN. "Rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love ... maybe they should invest in their own health care," Chaffetz said.
His comments had some stuck with this look on their face.
Hey @jasoninthehouse I pay $360/yr for phone, $6500 for health ins. How much of my tax dollars pay for YOUR FREE insurance & expensed phone?— Michelle Kane (@mishysmosh) March 7, 2017
Twitter wasn't having Chaffetz after the "iPhone comparison."
Some even went so far as to post their medical bills.
