The Daily Show‘s Jordan Klepper tries to help Republicans recover their message about what a disaster Obamacare has been despite all the evidence to the contrary. He talks with health care professionals who ran free clinics on shoe-string budgets who have shut them down because their patients now have access to better care.
As a bonus, you also see Betsy McCaughey, a serial distorter of Obamacare and promoter of the insane idea that it would result death panels (which was voted ‘Lie of the Year’ in 2009), walk away from an interview with him when he asks her how to deal with the problem of Obamacare’s success.
If you want to see an earlier episode in 2009 of The Daily Show where Jon Stewart challenges McCaughey’s serial fear-mongering distortions, go here. Given that experience, I am not sure why (a) she agree do the latest interview and (b) got in a huff at what seemed like an obvious approach by Klepper.
