Republican tells Americans to choose iPhone or healthcare. Twitter’s response is PRICELESS

Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) is facing another brutal round of public shaming after saying that low-income Americans should prioritize paying for healthcare instead of a new iPhone.

Chaffetz appeared on CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday to discuss the broadly criticized “Trumpcare” proposal being pitched as a replacement for the Affordable Care Act. During his segment, Chaffetz said the following:

“Americans have choices, and they’ve got to make a choice. So rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care.”

Shortly after making that comment, the internet did what the internet does best, and unloaded on Chaffetz’s rehashed argument about poverty, and people deciding to be poor.
