Stephen Colbert Picks Apart GOP Plans For ‘Zombie Trumpcare'

"That’s why New Hampshire is changing their license plate from ‘Live Free or Die’ to ‘Live Here and Die.'"

The GOP wants to bring its repeal of the Affordable Care Act back from the dead, but “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert is not having any of it.

On Thursday, he took aim at President Donald Trump and Republicans for trying to rekindle their bill, which has been dubbed “Zombie Trumpcare.”

“Unlike Obamacare, under the new plan, individual states would be allowed to not cover pre-existing conditions,” said Colbert. “That’s why New Hampshire is changing their license plate from ‘Live Free or Die’ to ‘Live Here and Die.’”

Colbert also said he couldn’t wait for Trump’s first 100 days to be over.

“It’s just so exhausting watching this man try to accomplish something.”
