Lewis Black destroys GOP talking points on health care


I've always had a great health care plan; I plan to someday care about my health. But I was all ready to support president Obama's health care reform until I saw these incredibly convincing arguments against it.

[House GOoP video]: 1 in 5 people have to die because they went to socialized medicine.

I've got bad news for you: 5 out of 5 people are going to die anyway. Now, I know that's supposed to scare me, but all I heard was socialized medicine means less traffic. Now, back when Clinton tried to reform healthcare, I learned to reject it from commercials.

Who needs health care reform when you're so in love that you finish your partner's [gazes at Jon]

Stewart: What?

Black: Sentences! The word was sentences, dammit! It's like you don't even know me anymore! That's it...I'm staying at my sister's tonight!

The problem is a personal one for Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell

[McWeasel video]: I had a friend in Florida who had a friend in Canada that died because the government decided he was too old for a certain kind of procedure.

Your anti-health care anecdote is a friend of a friend? That's not even enough proof for an urban legend. I have a friend of friend who brought home a dog back from Mexico. Then he shaved it. It turns out, someone had stolen his kidney and replaced it with a polaroid of my toothbrush up Richard Gere's ass. Go figure! If you can't give me any evidence, then at least do the honorable thing and confuse me.

I'm so glad I don't have insurance, because that road map seems like a huge pain in the ass, which by the way, I've been suffering from for over 15 years. Should your ass bleed when you sneeze? I just admitted I have a pre-existing condition! Gosh...I'm so tired of all this health care talk and I know I'm not the only one. Noonan?

[Peggy Noonan video]: When I was a kid growing up, we never talked about health care. Why did America become obsessed with health care the past 20 years or so?

You're not fooling anyone, lady! You weren't a kid 20 years ago. When you were growing up, people didn't talk about health care because they thought that they got sick from witches! But you're right; when I was growing up, we didn't have ads about health care. We had ads like this.

That was my Spongebob. And he could have taught me to dance or smoke. Believe it or not, I chose dance.
