Leave it to Stephen Colbert to figure out how to make a mockery of the Republicans like Michele Bachmann, who are already celebrating the "death" of "Obamacare" and Miley Cyrus at the same time.

After celebrating by doing a little twerking with the Grim Reaper, Colbert reminded himself and his viewers that have a few more hurdles than they anticipated to get past yet before anyone should be celebrating prematurely. As Colbert noted:

And folks, worse than the cost, or the bureaucrats, or the death panels, the most dangerous thing about Obamacare, is that people might like it.

As conservative writer Byron York recently yorked, "The White House knows that once those payments begin, repealing Obamacare will no longer be an abstract question of removing legislation not yet in effect. Instead, it will be a very real matter of taking money away from people. It's very, very hard to do that."

Yeah, it's like the old saying, give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Try to take that fish away again, and that guy will f**k you up with a halibut.

Colbert went onto explain that the one way they can make sure that doesn't happen is to mess with the health care navigators, as we've seen Republicans do in states across the country. And if that doesn't work, they'll just try, try, try, try..... again to repeal the law one more time.
