Kimmel Mocks Obamacare

Having trouble signing up on HealthCare.gov? Don’t expect Obamacare-Care to be any better.

Jimmy Kimmel took some shots at the health-care law’s ongoing problems by releasing an ad for the spoof program, which is intended to help users navigate the troubled HealthCare.gov.

In perhaps the biggest sign of Obamacare’s lack of popularity, in the lead-in to the video, Kimmel asked his audience who had already enrolled in Obamacare, and no one raised his hand.

“Really?” a bewildered Kimmel said. “They claim that more than 3 million people have now signed up on HealthCare.gov’s website.”
