John Oliver is back on Last Week Tonight and he’s here to talk about our favorite political subject- Obamacare vs. Trumpcare.
The GOP finally released their healthcare bill, which will now be known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Bye bye Obamacare. We’ll miss you forever! And of course, John Oliver had a few words to say about this new bill.
To put it quite simply:
"“Just being shitty Obamacare, the way Old Navy is a shitty version of the Gap, and the way Easter, let’s be honest, should just really be called shitty Christmas.”"
Can’t argue with you there, Oliver. Watch the full clip here:
The most ironic part is that the bill will be especially bad for the old people who actually voted for this garbage. Disabled Americans will also face a huge hit. The bill is basically for the top 1% of people in this country who make an insane amount of money. Like Trump, for example. So once again, this plan sucks.
"“This plan is literally taking money from the poor and giving it to the very rich. It’s essentially a reverse Bernie Sanders.”"
But Oliver makes the good point to maybe Trump isn’t all to blame. I mean, do we really believe that Trump read this entire thing? We all know he can’t read.
So, to wrap this up- this healthcare bill is exactly the opposite of what Trump promised this country. But did we expect anything different?
Even though the future of our country’s healthcare is suffering, at least we have John Oliver to make jokes about it and make us feel somewhat better about the trash bin of a political party we have in office right now. Let’s all remember this when Trump reruns in 2020.
