Jimmy Kimmel Can’t Find Any Obamacare Takers

Jimmy Kimmel is getting a lot of comedy mileage out of the Obamacare rollout.

Every time a new Obamacare problem pops up, the late night talk show host has a new punchline.

Tuesday night, Kimmel asked his Hollywood audience if any had signed up for health insurance through HealthCare.gov. Not a single person raised his or her hand.

“Really?” he responded. “They claim that more than 3 million people have now signed up on HealthCare.gov’s website.”

Kimmel also unveiled a new spoof about the “Obamacare-care” package visitors need in order to navigate HealthCare.gov. In the parody video, attempts to fix the difficult process only make it more impossible.

Of course, Kimmel is not the only person finding the humor in attempts to implement the bill. Health care is a serious topic, but Obamacare’s troubles have been so over-the-top, it’s become an easy target for the likes of Jay Leno [1], Jon Stewart [2], the Country Music Awards [3], and even Heritage’s most popular video [4] from last year.
