With the health care debate heading toward its final vote, Jon Stewart recapped the closing arguments made by both sides, particularly the ridiculous claims made by conservatives.

Correspondent John Oliver joined Stewart and gleefully championed the rhetoric of Rep. Steve King, who recently urged the Tea Party to engage in a Velvet Revolution-esque uprising. Oliver explained that ideals are the same, mocking the Tea Party's comparison of universal health care to communism.

But as Stewart pointed out, the argument doesn't hold much water, considering that one of the Czechs' post-revolution freedoms included universal health care. Needless to say, Oliver was crushed. As was his flower named "Reagan."
