John Oliver ripped apart the latest healthcare reform, referring to it as “shitty Obamacare”.
He then proceed to exposes the American Health Care Act, championed by the House speaker, Paul Ryan, saying: “You may not have wanted it, it looks awful, but it’s here anyway” which he likened to “Pirates of the Caribbean 5: The Curse of Johnny Depp Getting Divorced & Needing the Money”.
After this he discussed the negative reaction the bill has already encountered, even from many Republicans. “Much like the life behind Melania’s eyes, the AHCA looks dead by the time it was introduced in Washington,” he said.
Oliver called it “shitty Obamacare, the way Old Navy is a shitty version of the Gap” before talking about the mechanics of the plan. Older people, he said, would get more money toward their healthcare, leading him to joke: “The older you get, the more money you get. Think of it as the exact opposite of being a woman in Hollywood.”
