Six of One - Obamacare vs. The Affordable Care Act
What’s the difference between Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act?
We can always count on Jimmy Kimmel to make average Americans seem really, really stupid.
Kimmel trolled the streets of Los Angeles on Monday to ask people to choose which health plan they preferred: Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. These are, of course, the exact same thing.
But that didn’t stop people in L.A. from pontificating on the various pros and cons of “two” policies that are the SAME THING.
One guy called Obamacare “un-American,” but the Affordable Care Act is “more American.” Another thinks that Obamacare is “socialist,” but the Affordable Care Act is not.
But the man in the Lakers jersey is the best: “So the Affordable Care Act is more affordable than Obamacare?” “Yes. Just the name says it all.”
I think I will go and give myself 30 lashes…
