Jon Stewart’s Scathing Obamacare Critique Is as Ruthlessly Honest as It Is Funny

All Democrats needed to do in order to secure a political advantage was execute the implementation of Obamacare in a “mildly competent” fashion, at least according to comedian Jon Stewart.

Well, they failed — and Stewart is letting them know it.

Jon Stewart Delivers Scathing Obamacare Rollout Critique

Comedy Central

After slamming the GOP’s shutdown strategy, Stewart claimed that the country was ready to “turn blue.” Now, there’s just one big problem… or 99 of them.

“Yes, apparently the Healthcare.gov website has 99 problems, but a glitch is all of them,” Stewart joked.

After playing a clip of a news report outlining the problems users are having with simply logging in on the website, he then noted that “the first step” doesn’t even work. The horrific rollout of Obamacare has left Democrats completely unable to “spin this turd,” he added.

Obviously, the website should have been better prepared than it was.

lol...love Jon Stewart.

As a democrat I am not happy with the roll out either.Yet as an American I am not rooting for obamacare to fail.I am rooting for all Americans to be able to get healthcare.

We can be part of the problem or the solution.Republicans may not like government involved in healthcare.Yet we also cant deny the amount of people in need of healthcare.

Do you want all Americans to get Healthcare or all Americans to get Health Insurance?
