Seth Meyers Dissects Donald Trump’s Obamacare Replacement

He found a lot of flaws.

Seth Meyers picked apart the GOP’s health care bill Monday, and he didn’t like what he saw.

The “Late Night” host noted how many Republicans were also reportedly skeptical about the proposed replacement for Obamacare, which a report out Monday noted would see up to 24 million people standing to lose insurance.

Republicans’ resistance to the GOP’s proposed American Health Care Act had prompted President Donald Trump to invite Congress members to the White House for a bowling and pizza party, Meyers said.

“That’s right, Trump is trying to sway members of Congress with an 8-year-old’s birthday party. Also good news, Steve Bannon has agreed to be a terrifying clown,” he said, referring to the White House chief strategist.

Meyers later ridiculed some GOP lawmakers for the bizarre and unhelpful ways in which they’ve talked about the proposed bill. He highlighted for particularly mockery Rep. Jason Smith’s (R-Mo.) throwaway comments on taxing the sun during a serious debate and Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s (R-Utah) argument that low-income Americans could afford health care if they didn’t buy iPhones.
