Colbert Laments That Millions Of Americans Now Have Access To Affordable Health Care

Stephen Colbert reminded us what conservatives said and continue to say about 'Obamacare' enrollment reaching its goal of seven million.

Stephen Colbert put on his best faux conservative hat last night to describe the disaster that had befallen our nation: Obamacare had reached the dreaded 7 million sign-ups and millions more were about to get access to affordable health care. Colbert then went into a montage of the usual suspects (Hannity, Rove, Krauthammer, etc.), all saying the usual things.

Colbert repeated their dire warnings back to them:

COLBERT: How many are young? How many have paid? What if their check doesn’t clear? What are numbers anyway but artificial constructs? And did you know that these are Arabic numerals? I mean, the ’3′ is just two Islamic crescent moons stacked on top of each other.”

“The terrorists have won,” he concluded.
