SNL Takes On "Deeply Unpopular" Health Care Bill (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

SNL opened last night with Obama (Fred Armisen) speaking on health care and the upcoming elections in San Francisco and Nevada. Flanked by Nancy Pelosi (Kristen Wiig) and Harry Reid (Will Forte), they repeatedly acknowledged the consistent unpopularity of health care reform and the affects it would have their chances for reelection.

Obama brushed off the notion that a vote for this legislation is political suicide: "Does anyone seriously think Nancy Pelosi could lose in her San Francisco district? A place where Republican candidates often finish fourth, behind professional dominatrixes and homeless people." He was more skeptical of Reid's chances, as the health care bill is "angry mob unpopular" in Nevada. Not to mention his lack of charisma or "sleazy" moves.
