How the Republican Health Care Bill Came and Went: The Daily Show

thank you everybody our guest tonight legendary rapper and producer of the Starz hit show power 50 cent is here everybody next and I am so glad we could get 50 tonight because last night Senate Republicans definitely could not overnight the Republican plan to replace Obamacare officially falling short with two more GOP senators unexpectedly pulling their support for seven years Republican lawmakers have vowed to overturn Obamacare but this morning their latest plan has come to a screeching halt no Trump cares no more now I have no idea how I'm gonna die oh I don't know why we surprise people let's be honest we all knew the words Trump and care we're never destined to be together just ask Eric so last night the Senate plan officially collapsed and luckily for Republicans they had parliamentary genius and forskin impersonator Mitch McConnell in their corner the Senate's plan B for Trump care seems dead and Plan C had barely been introduced before it was slain as well GOP senators balking at majority leader Mitch McConnell's proposal to ditch a replacement for Obamacare and instead just going to outright repeal without a replacement at least three Republican senators say they will not support that option ooh all the Senate ladies all the Senate ladies oh the plan not but no no no no no no no [Applause] yeah Republicans have been saying forever that Obamacare is going to fail it's in a death spiral but after years of them trying to kill it it is somehow the only thing that's still around all of their health care plans collapse immediately they're like Obamacare is dead check out our plan oh my god plan wake up plan wake up oh no our plan won't wake up is there an Obamacare in the house if you're in a property if you're a Republican like today suck balls you have to admit it actually it actually all reminds me of something a wise man once said nobody knew that health care could be so complicated from the mouths of babes but the president was at least partly rights because it's true no one knew how complicated health care could be once Donald Trump got involved because because even if you remember but before he stepped in Republicans had a strategy for destroying Obamacare a new strategy is gaining steam on Capitol Hill that would quickly repeal most of President Obama's Affordable Care Act but delay the effects for up to two years yeah that was the original plan they would take it apart but slowly over time their plan was basically to treat health care like Jenga gradually dismantle it piece by piece so when it finally collapsed it would have been someone else's problem and then Donald Trump came along and he's like oh boy Jenga bowling under the prodding of President Trump Republicans decided not to just repeal and worry about replaced later but try to do it in one bucket it'll be repeal and replace it will be essentially simultaneously it will be various segments you understand but will most likely be on the same day or the same week but probably the same day it could be the same hour so we're going to do repeal and replace in fact it's happening right now it just happened it just happened you understand this just think of it like this Donald Trump is basically an unlikable baby Groot right Republicans were like all right Donald here's the plan repeal no replace he was like replace no no no no no Donald no no no no replace repeal replace no you're not listening repeal repeal and replace oh there's a clear reason that the Republicans just suffered today's failure and that reason lives in the White House to add insult to injury while the GOP is health care dreams were crumbling Trump wasn't even helping he was hosting a playful a party at the White House celebrating something called made in America week where the president basically checked out guitars wrestled with baseball bats and of course his favorite civet e sake driving a truck yeah and everyone's like the fires behind you in the White House I thought you notify if I liked the whole event was designed to convince Donald Trump to take up any other job what about baseball no no you don't want you want to be a fireman anything man will give you anything I mean at one point he even gotten applause just for putting on a hat [Applause] yeah yeah I told you he'd get something right eventually yeah that's where we are and that's how the Republican healthcare plan came and went with them failing to get their votes and the president playing pretend in the White House so the truth is for the Republicans it's not looking good it's July their health care plan is officially dead they have no infrastructure bill and they're months behind on tax reform at some point they have to admit that their world is burning down fortunately for the Republicans they have a fireman on their team hey everyone before you click over to another youtube contouring tutorial just a reminder watch full episodes of The Daily Show for free any time with the Comedy Central app or at the Daily Show com now you can go on your way and it's all about the cheeks lions and cheese


  1. I think Trump has infected you somehow.
    You are from Africa, located in the USA trying to interfere with its system. Your colleagues keep doing videos about censorship, racism and human rights. Eventually, we aren't allowed to watch your TV show outside the USA using your website or Comedy Central service just because at the moment we are located outside the USA. A message will say: SORRY 'BOUT THAT
    This video is not available from your location.
    Are you kidding me? maybe you should start making jokes about yourself first and about your hypocrisy then you can talk about racism and human rights.

  2. It seems that pretty soon the USA will becone a third world country with dictator in chief God help America.. that hat looked good on Trump it does suit him

  3. All they wanted was to make sure some poor billionaire in the Ritz Carlton didn't have to pay for the medical care that some schmuck working unpaid overtime making money for the billionaire's company needs because the billionaire didn't want to pay an extra cent per person to meet basic work safety standards! Have you people no hearts? D=
    Those poor, shiftless, golfing lardasses… sniffle

  4. I used to ask myself why does his eyes match his hair. Then i realized its probably from those glasses they give you spray tan

  5. I'd applaud him putting a hat on too, since it means we won't have to look at the dead cat on his head

  6. He mentioned that the GOP was months behind in introducing a tax reform and now it's October and I saw an ad before watching this video about the tax reform bill being in congress

  7. You know, I’m starting to see the GOP’s support of him as their presidential candidate as a brilliant long term move. They knew they didn’t have anyone that could beat Hillary in a popularity contest so they pushed him in front, knowing how bad he’d be. And in four years, Americans on both sides will be so desperate for ANYTHING better that it won’t matter who they put in front of them!

  8. This is too harsh of a judgement. What do we all know – something we all know to be true. It is looking at the intentions of a person. Trump might need to get some help and advice – but look at who he said are always upright and well intended. It is not the old geezers he has in his office. It is who he always said would help him along the way. Let's not turn a blind eye to the truth. What we ALL agreed uniformly was the truth. What we died for because we believe it was destined to be. The refuse to give up this American dream and think millions died with honor and vain. THAT is the ultimate failure and tra defy. Never forget your past- but let it help give you strength to move forward for what the greater good and people wanted. For a better and more glorious earth. Please. Please. Please. Don't silence The voices of those not here. For though you might not see them – they are hear and are rolling over in their graves hearing this. The idea that America will not thrive. Because we will.

  9. Before you say Oh my God, think about what got the health care system there in the first place. It is looking at the holistic person. What made them get there – what did they have to overcome – and what new ideas and truths evolved. If our goal IS to forever evolve – we must do just that. If we are fortunate to still be the on this Earth – there is a reason for that. A reason guided by something bigger we might not be able to understand. But health care is just that. Complicated. It is necessary to look at the whole person – where they have been, what they learned, and how that transforms them to pursue their ultimate calling they have felt since birth.

  10. You know what tho? I hate Trump but I'm glad he forced republicans to work for repeal and replace simultaneously bc those fuckers were really about to screw people over slowly but surely and then let someone else deal with the fallout.
