You may be wondering why pictures of Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz on a scooter is clogging up your Twitter feed.

Republicans in the House of Representatives, including Chaffetz, just voted to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act (AHCA), also known as Obamacare - and he was one of them.

The new system, unaffectionately nicknamed 'Trumpcare', would allow insurance companies to increase the cost of healthcare for pre-existing conditions.

Chaffetz is the person who, back in March, compared the cost of healthcare with a new iPhone.

He's also someone who suffers from a foot ailment, caused by a 12-year-old injury.

Put another way, he suffers from a pre-existing condition.

Twitter has been quick to make this rather obvious connection, and he's become a meme...
