"GOP passed a health care bill so bad they exempted themselves from it. They may live longer, but when they die, it’s straight to hell!" said Midler.

House Republicans voted Thursday (May 4) to approve a controversial health care bill, that would repeal and replace elements of Obamacare. 

Musicians including Katy Perry, John Legend, Bette Midler and more reacted in disgust to the divisive political action. 

Perry encouraged her followers to call their senators to vote down the bill when they are called to vote on it next. Meanwhile, Legend jumped to action putting his money here is mouth is by donating to 2018 Democratic congressional challengers and Hayley Williams of Paramore channeled the day's "May the 4th be with you" meme to draw parallels between the U.S. and the Galactic Empire.
