By now, you’ve probably seen the Tweets or Facebook posts mocking those people saying they prefer the Affordable Care Act to Obamacare. We can’t decide if this is hilarious or sad or both.
Late Night TV host Jimmy Kimmel used his “Man on the Street” segment this week to interview people about which of the two (which are obviously just two names for THE EXACT SAME THING) they prefer.
One woman the interviewer approached said that she “doesn’t support Obama so I don’t support the Obama-things he’s got going on.”
“So, you don’t like anything Obama does and you prefer the Affordable Care Act?” he asked her, to which she replied, “Absolutely.”
Another man said he decided to support the ACA over Obamacare because his girlfriend is a Trump supporter, and yet another man brilliantly explained that the difference in the two is that “one you pay and the other Obama pays for you.”
Another man said that “I believe with Obamacare the premiums are too high, so I believe in the Affordable Care Act.”
“So, the Affordable Care Act is more affordable than Obamacare?” the interviewer asked.
“Correct. “Which is obvious because it’s in the name,” the man replied.
I don’t know people. Maybe we deserve Donald Trump. Right now, we need to really make America smart again.
