The Daily Show's Jon Stewart takes a trip back to Bullsh*t Mountain following the freakout over the CBO report, which just gave birth to the latest set of right wing talking points on Obamacare.
February 6, 2014

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took a trip back to Bullsh*t Mountain this Thursday night, after the media and Republicans went nuts over the newly released CBO report, which, as Stewart explained, they immediately turned on its head to pretend that Obamacare is a job killer.

As Stewart rightfully pointed out, job lock used to be something Republicans opposed, but now that the new health care law is going to allow American workers some mobility, it's an "incentive not to work." After showing Paul Ryan's flip flopping, along with the the yappers over at Faux "news" calling Americans lazy moochers who don't want to work, Stewart responded.

STEWART: You know, like Social Security incentivizes Americans to not die at their job. But hey, it's nice to witness a birth of a new talking point and if giving someone health care is all it takes to get people to stop showing up to work, I don't know why we don't chip in and get Lou Dobbs some health care.

And you won't believe what these lazy poors, who've been sitting around, biding their time at their two jobs, just waiting for the day they can ride the Uncle Sugar train to Medicaid-town, are going to do with their new found windfall. [...]

Yeah, spend time with your family. Help raise your children in a more hands on fashion. Create stability. What the hell!? You're conservatives. I thought you guys loved family?

Of course, they only love family "values" when it doesn't interfere with unfettered capitalism. Then you can throw that family time right out the window.

Can you help us out?
