On Sunday’s Last Week Tonight, John Oliver warned Donald Trump and to America that the American Health Care Act might actually pass. The new plan to replace Obamacare has been panned by Democrats and Republicans alike, but it might be the law of the land soon.
“You may not have wanted it, it looks awful, but it’s here anyway. Try and think of it as the legislative equivalent of Pirates of the Caribbean 5: The Curse of Johnny Depp Getting Divorced and Needing the Money. And as will be the case with that movie, the early reviews of this thing have been rough.”
“Essentially, people on both sides see the AHCA as just being sh–ty ObamaCare, the way Old Navy is a sh–ty version of the Gap,” Oliver said. But “this bill is not actually dead on arrival. There is still a chance it could become law. So given that, we need to take a look at what is actually inside this thing.”
Oliver then gave a run down of everything the plan will change about Obamacare and everyone who might lose coverage. “If this bill is bad for older Americans, poor Americans, and many Trump supporters, and all these groups oppose it, who exactly is it for?” Watch the clip to see Oliver answer that question.
