Late Night Comedians Take On The President’s Cut Heavy Healthcare Bill

0
  • Folks, if you can get sick or know anyone who can get sick or get old or whatnot, it would be a pretty good idea to call your Senator right about now, as the AHCA — the president’s replacement for Obamacare/ACA that’s going to slash healthcare, dropping millions and more or less destroy medicare — which like — again, bad news if you plan on growing old or having a child some day.

    All of this is bleak — which is why I’m thrilled to say that our Late Night comedians have stepped up to the plate and gave a little bit of levity to all of this extreme healthcare bleakness. First off was Seth Meyers telling us pretty much the straight facts — classic Daily Show style — about Mitch McConnell, how this bill was drafted in secret, and what it means for the American people.

  • Then there was Jimmy Kimmel who took a more sketch like approach to describing or showing the fallout of these events by talking to a group of children about it. Watch as children are outraged and shocked that someone would lose their healthcare “just cuz”. Also there’s a kid who wants to grow up to be a “president like Trump” which is both weird and cute at the same time.

  • Then, our favorite, Stephen Colbert went over the basics of the scramble for votes on the healthcare bill, cutting into just how strongly republicans are bypassing any debate on this bill — are they worried we’ll lose? The gags in this are just lovely.
