In his latest of his ‘man on the street’ interview segments, late talk show host Jimmy Kimmel sent a reporter to ask people to share their issues with Obamacare versus the Affordable Care Act, prefacing the segment by mentioning that he’d done this once before and people didn’t realize that they both were the same thing.
“We decided to ask this question again to see if Americans had learned everything over the last three years,” Kimmel said.
Unfortunately, the same misconceptions still seem to exist.
According to one woman, she “doesn’t support Obama so I don’t support the Obama-things he’s got going on.”
“So, you don’t like anything Obama does and you prefer the Affordable Care Act?” the Jimmy Kimmel Live! reporter asked the woman.
“Absolutely!” she replied.
Even Obama supporters were confused, with one man saying he preferred Obamacare to the ACA.
When another man was asked what the difference between the laws he said, “one you pay and the other Obama pays for you.”
“I believe with Obamacare the premiums are too high, so I believe in the Affordable Care Act,” another man said.
“So, the Affordable Care Act is more affordable than Obamacare?” the reporter asked.
“Correct,” the man replied. “Which is obvious because it’s in the name.”
