How are those poor, downtrodden and hurting health care executives supposed to recover from ... billions in profits? Double-digit percentage hikes for the captive audience known as their paying customers? Captain Moneybags brings his “Daily Show” camera crew to investigate and express his condolences at their recent elbow-rubbing session at the Washington Ritz-Carlton in this clip from Monday’s episode. It doesn’t go so well.  —KA

See, this is one of the problems, if everybody was covered and had health care: nobody would care about themselves; no one would take care of themselves. We’d lose that jungle edge that makes America great! We’d all just run around and get hurt and beat up; eat all the wrong fast food quickly on our breaks, and just have the hard working doctors and nurses stitch us up and pump our guts out. Just like women today use abortion as a contraceptive technique. Get preggers? Hell, just go getchyer’ uterus sucked clean. I betchya’ the guys at the door don’t have health insurance and that they work two jobs to make ends meet and neither one of them provides a health plan, because it’s just too dang hard to figure out, and too expensive, plus it doesn’t cover shit anyway. I do bet though, that Asif Mondvi has an absolutely fabulous health plan, the gold plated kind,... because he works for Viacom, who is owned by a spider web of corporate interconnectedness. Oh, and probably actually owned by off planet aliens… who like their costumed employees fat and sassy. I mean what’s all this freedom they hate us for, for anyway, if not to pay more and more and make less and less and get even more less and less?

Good for him!  Humiliate just a couple of those people, and it’s a job well done!
