Jimmy Kimmel Savages ObamaCare and Uninformed Young People Who Support It
Newsbusters ^ | 1/15/14 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 01/15/2014 9:03:49 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

As NewsBusters has been reporting for months, late night comics have been tearing the atrocious rollout of ObamaCare apart.

Conceivably the best job done to date was by ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel who during his opening monologue Tuesday evening absolutely savaged the law whilst ridiculing the uninformed young people in this country that have ignorantly supported something that clearly harms them (video follows with transcript and commentary):....

Really delicious stuff.

However, this raises a question: with the exception of the penis pump issue, everything that Kimmel addressed was known before ObamaCare was enacted.

Certainly, America’s youth are woefully uninformed – but why is that?

Assume for a moment that as this bill was being crafted, and well before it was rammed through both chambers of Congress without one Republican vote, America’s media had actually informed the public about what was in the legislation.

Many Republicans in the US Senate are equally complicit for not standing firm and refusing to "fund the federal government" until the Obamacare mandate was stopped. They're so choked by the DC fog that they don't even get it that it was the administration's infantile closures of monuments, etc that people were getting upset about.

RINO Republicans will end up getting the blame for siding with the insurance companies.

we shouldn’t make much of a few little outliers going against the obamanation.....its too little and too late...you trust people when they speak out loud and clear when danger first strikes, not after the damage is done....

Very good,
especially the mock Obamacare ACA commercial Kimmel played with the older couple basically calling young people suckers.

You misunderstood Dems, when they said ‘everybody’ they meant everybody who the law gives it to for free, not everybody in USA.

Its like keeping your policy if you want to.

They meant in October 2013 you can keep any policy that has not been changed at all since early 2009, which happens to be NONE of them. So they kept their promise.

Read the fine print.

Seems that ObamaCare’s primary demographic and Jimmy Kimmel’s primary demographic are (a) the same and (b) battling each other.

Pass the popcorn, please.

The stupid youth want their gay marriage and to see Digeneres degenerate keep her fame along with idiot Barney.

It is how Zero blackmails them into this health care disaster. It is all money greedy compellings by a militant state and the media.

He is a compeller of them into their illegalities, he blackmails them in their shames and demoralizations and crimes.

He is using the old play book used by tyrants who exploited thus and were held as criminals against humanity.

There is one more comedian on TV who for years has been espousing conservative views AND taking huge, funny shots at Obama..Tim Allen on "Last Man Standing"

The last episode, which you can see on ABC.com and other places..clobbers Obama, liberals, in general..it praises Barry Goldwater, and smears Hillary...he talks about getting "cankles in the White House.."

Well worth watching..

Funny jokes, but Kimmel would Vote for Obama a third time if he could. Since he can’t, he will be supporting Hillary.

Where is the TEA Party Congressman who will introduce a bill repealing the bailout of insurance companies by the taxpayers, as set up by the “Risk Corridors” part of ObamaCare? Repealing the cushy safety net that the insurers insisted upon to get their support for this disastrous bill will be a sure way of killing it. We’re waiting, Republicans........

Grandma is going to need a sex change before Levitra is going to be of any benefit.

The owner of the tobacco shop I frequent is all happy now because he can “have” health insurance. I’ve explained to him several times that the law has a goal of putting him out of business, but he is too busy celebrating to see his bleak future.....

which happens to be NONE of them.

Well just so you know, I did get to keep my major medical policy, evidently we changed to a higher deductible a few years before 3/2010 when the law passed.

So we now pay $545 a month, it went up $100 with the renewal as we turned 60 and we have to pay an additional 2.5% tax, didn't know that was in the bill either, with a $7500 deductible. Self employed and have had this type of policy with this company for over 20 years and I like it!

Funny bits IMHO, if comedy like this keeps going until November, who knows how the landscape will change. More importantly, the writers now got a clue that this whole thing is fubar'd and they are not afraid to make fun of it...

They are suffering from some sort of Munchhausen or something worse....

Did you hear Levin last night?

His sources tell him Obama called the House and threatened a veto if they did 2 things in the new omnibus budget.

One, any language that prohibited funding or tried to stop the Sibilius mandate, i.e. the faith based exclusion in regards to birth control / abortion etc and...

Second, any language restricting the IRS in regards to investigating 501(c)4 political organizations...

Does anyone remember the words of Valerie Jarrett in regards to the election ?

Catholics, all people of faith, and Tea Partier's are obviously on his mind...

What are his intentions with these demands?
