"Daily Show" Mocks Senate Health Care Debate (VIDEO)

Taking on the seemingly endless health care debate, Jon Stewart mocked the Senate's claim that they were working through the weekend with "no end in sight." After pointing out that, by default, weekends end on Monday, he scoffed at the efforts -- putting in extra hours does not change the fact that they missed their August deadline. "Working weekends doesn't send you back in time," Stewart joked.

Determined to figure out the cause of the prolonged session, Stewart then called out the Republican Senators, notably Judd Gregg, for hypocritically stalling the process. In 2004, Gregg publicly accused the Democrats of stalling. As Stewart astutely pointed out, "the cock-blockee has become the cock-blocker."
