Stephen Colbert poked fun at some of the predictions of the Affordable Care Act’s demise before the Supreme Court. “Obamacare is dead!” he declared on Wednesday night’s episode of the Colbert Report. “It was killed by nine people in black robes. I told you there would be death panels.”
After the court adjourned Wednesday, legal and political analysts took to cable news networks to declare the proceedings a “train wreck,” which Colbert one-upped by calling the proceedings “a train wreck that slammed into the Hindenburg, landed on the deck of the Titanic, and then sailed it to see “John Carter.”
Colbert then poked fun at the misguided assumption that if the government can force you to buy health insurance, sooner or later they’ll force you to eat broccoli.
