Republicans managed to push a new health care bill through the House on Thursday, and on The Daily Show Thursday night, Trevor Noah tore into the new Trumpcare, which would see an estimated 24 million people lose their health coverage.
“Today was crazy, no doubt about it. Because after seven years of foreplay and with just two votes to spare, the House Republicans successfully passed a bill to repeal Obamacare, which could mean more than 20 million Americans would no longer have health insurance. People with pre-existing conditions could see a massive spike in their premiums,” Noah explained.
“Although the truth is, we don’t know any of this for sure,” he said. “Why? Because Republicans passed this bill without an official scoring of its costs, from the CBO. Republicans cared less about the bill’s quality than the optics of getting a bill passed.”
“The big difference between the bill the House passed today and the one that failed six weeks ago is that this one is even worse for people who are most vulnerable,” Noah explained. “Basically Republicans said, ‘Hey, all the poor and sick people, what do you need? All right. Psych!’”
