Stephen Colbert Cancels His Obamacare Failure Celebration as Millions of Americans Get Health Care

Posted on Apr 2, 2014

All those conservatives wishing and hoping and praying that the Affordable Care Act would be doomed are biting their tongues now. Or are they?

Apparently there are still lots of questions Fox News reporters, among other right-wing nuts, are asking about the biggest success the health care act has had since its less-than-perfect launch. For example, who the hell is trying to get health insurance?

But, as President Obama puts it, the real question that’s come out of this whole thing is why are people working so damn hard to keep Americans uninsured? Graciously, Stephen Colbert’s found the perfect way for Republicans to save face now that the ACA is clearly not going anywhere. Two words: April fools.
