Seth Meyers takes on the GOP’s ‘insane, cruel and reckless’ healthcare bill

Seth Meyers took a 10-plus minute “Closer Look” at the problems with the Republican’s TrumpCare bill on Thursday night. “House Republicans were forced to delay a vote on their healthcare bill today after acknowledging they didn’t have the votes to pass it,” said Meyers, who taped the show before Trump pushed Republicans to vote by Friday.

Meyers began by discussing the continuing revelations about the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, but while that news is troubling, Meyers remarked that “what the Republicans have been doing with healthcare may be just as outrageous and will certainly affect more Americans.”

He criticized Democrats for rushing to pass Obamacare years ago, but didn’t mince words about the Republicans now trying to dismantle it.

“Republicans think your insurance plan shouldn’t be required to cover hospitals,” Meyers said. “But don’t worry, every American gets one free ride on the cart that picks up your dead.”
