Bill Maher And Congressman Give Tea Partier Lesson In Obamacare (VIDEO) [View all]



Bill Maher: I want to correct this one idea they have, that Americans donít like Obamacare, because I see this poll all the time. 54% of Americans are against Obamacare. Not really true, because 16% of that 54% want it to be more Left. They want single payer. So itís really only 38% of the people who are on your team (Tea Party Team).

Matt Kibbe: I donít think thatís right.

Bill Maher: No, that is right. Those are facts. We are not arguing opinion now. Those are the facts.

Rep. Alan Grayson: And these are people who recognize that there are fundamental, how should I put this, conflict of interest between you and your insurance company. Even if we switch to no government involvement at all, people would still get insurance and they would be in a situation where every time you needed care you would be taking money out of the pockets, the profit of your insurance company. And we havenít taken a step beyond that. But Obamacare does do useful things. Itís put 4 million people who are up to the age of 26 on the rolls by joining their parentsí plans. Itís closed 3/4 of the donut hole so seniors donít have to choose between their medicines and pay their rent. It has taken 35 million people including my wife by the way, 35 million people who couldnít get insurance because of pre-existing conditions, now they can. And now, insurance companies if you have expensive care canít literally pull the plug on you when you are in a coma. Those are all good things. And those are all things that the Tea Party is desperate to eliminate.
