  • Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood Mock Obamacare at Country Music Awards

    “Saturday Night Live” and Jon Stewart aren’t the only ones poking fun at the epic failure that is Obamacare. Last night, the Country Music Awards opened with a skit directly aimed at HealthCare.gov’s colossal problems.

    Hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood didn’t hold back when they took on the subject matter. Paisley pretended he had an injured back and Underwood asked him if he had “that Obamacare.”

    Underwood said, “Oh it’s great, I’ve been signing up since last Thursday.”

    The two then sat down with a laptop to check HealthCare.gov, which they discovered was “spinning and smoking.”

    The two then busted into a faux rendition of George Strait’s “Amarillo by Morning” — changing the words to “Obamacare by Morning” with the following words:

    Obamacare by morning, why is this takin’ so long?
    I’m gonna wind up with hemorrhoids if I sit here till dawn.
    We’ll have cataracts and dementia, oh this is gettin’ on my last nerve,
    Obamacare by morning, over six people served.

    Flash to a heavily grinning George Strait in the audience, who clearly found humor in the situation. While a few audience members looked less than thrilled to be entertained by such a political subject matter (and a few — like Taylor Swift — looked downright confused), most of the Opry lit up with praise for the silly sketch.
