Obamacare continues to take hits on late-night TV, with the latest punch thrown by talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel.
Earlier this week, Kimmel opened his show with a monologue blasting the health care law and its rocky rollout.
“The rollout of the Affordable Care Act continues to be terrible. First, there are technical problems with the HealthCare.gov website. Now comes news that not enough young and healthy Americans are signing up for coverage, which is crucial for the success of the program,” said Kimmel.
He continued by blasting the White House for hoping so many young people would sign up when the law actually allows them to stay on their parents’ insurance until they are 26.
Kimmel followed the monologue with a humorously ironic commercial showing an older couple thanking the “young people” for paying for their insurance benefits.
