Late night comedian highlights the public’s ignorance over the new healthcare law
Oct. 2, 2013
Believe it or not, many people don’t know they’re interchangeable names of the same piece of health care legislation.
But leave it to late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel to highlight the dumb-downed public’s utter ignorance with anything remotely political, even when it involves a major overhaul of their healthcare.
The fact is many are still blissfully unaware that the unconstitutional Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, is a thinly-veiled extortion tactic forcing every American to pay a penalty to the IRS if they don’t obtain healthcare.
The fines for being uninsured start at $95 for an individual in 2014, or 1 percent of household income if that’s higher. Those figures are expected to quickly escalate to $695 annually by 2016, or 2.5 percent of household income.
Of course, you’re justified in being skeptical of the interviews. Last month Kimmel tricked scores into believing they were watching the worst twerk fail ever.
