Steven Colbert on Opt Out

leave a comment »

Colbert, in a video that I cannot seem to embed, but can be watched here, He really hits it out of the park on 3 points:

a. How insurance works (the Right doesn’t seem to understand)

b. The Right’s indignation at emotional appeals for ACA, leading immediately to the Right’s emotional appeal to…

c. Opt Out: Can there be any sicker or more perverse campaign than a campaign to convince young people NOT to buy health insurance (and pay a fine for the privilege of not getting health insurance). Next, they’ll be telling young males, “Look, if you’re a young driver, it’s stupid to have to buy car insurance. Don’t do it. What could possibly happen?”
