On Wednesday, Stephen Colbert, host of CBS’s “The Late Show,” slammed the ongoing attempt by Republicans to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
“Republicans are trying to repeal and replace ObamaCare, again. This is beyond beating a dead horse. This is getting damn close to bestiality, OK? I hope that horse has a safe word,” Colbert joked.
Colbert then pointed out how this version of the GOP’s health bill is not much different than their previous proposal, which ultimately failed.
“It would have cut Medicaid, increased premiums and left millions uninsured. Whereas this new bill has a different name.”
Colbert also noted the fact that Republicans are currently moving as fast as possible to push this bill.
“It’s a race against the clock. They’ve got 10 days to overhaul the healthcare system or everybody lives.”
Colbert has not been the only late night host to go after the GOP’s new health bill.
ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel slammed the bill on his show Wednesday.
“Oh I get it, I don’t understand it because I’m a talk show host. Then help me out. Which part don’t I understand? The part where you cut $243 billion dollars from federal health-care assistance? Am I not understanding the part where states would let insurance companies price you out of coverage for having pre-existing conditions?” Kimmel said.
