John Oliver Reminds Republicans It’s Time for Their Obamacare Replacement: “Tick Tock, Motherfuckers”

Here’s a clip from last night’s Last Week Tonight, where John Oliver looks at the Republicans’ promise to replace Obamacare with something even better and why options like refundable tax credits, health savings accounts, block grants, and high-risk pools don’t solve the problems that the ACA fixed. “A tax credit that small helps cover your health insurance the way a thong covers your dad’s ass: It doesn’t, and there’s something that is fundamentally wrong about that,” Oliver says. “Republicans have happily complained about the flaws in the law, taken no responsibility for fixing them, and, in fact, have often undermined the whole thing. But that time is now over. It is their turn to present a plan, and the clock is ticking.”
