The actress, 47, said as much on Thursday evening as she posted a picture to Instagram of herself lying in a hospital bed in Mexico as her left arm was bound in a below-elbow cast.
“Reading US election results while on the stairs = bone break,” the outspoken performer wrote.
She continued: “It cost $250 in Mexico for my emergency room visit, compared to a likely 10k hospital bill in California for the same accident.”
“USA is not the land of the free, it’s the land of the overcharged,” McGowan added.
Donning a red facial covering, she ended her diatribe with the hashtags “#bigpharma #usa🇺🇸 #mexico 🇲🇽 OUCH.”
As election votes poured in on Wednesday, she delivered a message of solidarity to supporters of both presidential candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden and encouraged folks to “go with the game-changers.”
“We just have to keep fighting and pushing forward, not in the same cult-like, two-way thinking. This is different, this is bigger,” she said. “Go with the game-changers, even if someone stirs it up and you hate them, you’re reacting, and you’re thinking, and you’re feeling, and you’re doing, and you’re moving, and you’re acting.”
Added McGowan: “The action is the most important thing.”
